The utilization of the library should be an essential practice of students, staff and researchers of the university. As to prominent scholar in the field of library and information science Dr. SR Ranganathan once said in his five laws of library science “books are for use” which means books in the library should fulfils the reading, reference and aspiration need of the members of the library. Accordingly, we have developed the library collection by using the request of students, staff and subject specialists of the university.

I am therefore, very pleasure to inform you that we have very valuable collection of books in our library; some of them are still not available in other higher education institution. Apart from that we have a good collection of general reading including periodicals would enrich the reader with knowledge on a variety of fields taking place in a dynamic world where information is no secret any more. We also have taken steps to develop a special collection of CDs, DVDs and other electronic materials housed at the computer section of the library will fascinate the reader with eye caching information wherever possible.

I would like to remind that we could hardly gain anything without customary reading from the university. The library is therefore yours and I take pleasure in inviting you to visit the library and use for the above facilities developed by us over the year to update your knowledge in the fast changing world.

Take maximum use of the library.

Thank you and Welcome.
