About the Library

Our college has a well maintained and modern library that was started with the establishment of the college in 1981 in order to cater information and services for academic and research needs of the students, teachers and other staff members.

The college is proud of its library which comprises with Central Library and Seminar Libraries for honours departments. At beginning, the library was located in the ground floor with one small room at the ground floor of the main building. However, with the passage of time, as the number of books increased and the library needed more space and it has been shifted to the first floor of college.

The library is now spread over 2500 sq. feet and decorated with spacious shelving area, two reading rooms (one for students and one for teachers), one e-library section and two rooms allotted for Seminar Libraries. The sitting capacity of students' reading room is 60 readers and teachers' reading room is 10 readers. The library is 'close access' for the students but 'open access' for the teachers. The whole library is secured with the CCTV surveillance.

Our library has as many as 15000 books including 110 reference books and 34 brail books. It provides the opportunity to access both the national and international journals, CD/DVDs, magazines and news papers. Apart from that, there is Shyamal Banerjee Memorial Collection containing 70 books and Rakhal Chandra Ghosh Smriti Collection containing 150 books.

Our library is partially automated using Integrated Library Management System (ILMS), Koha, version 3.16.04 on Ubuntu 12.04 customized by Bengal Library Association. As of now the Online Catalogue (OPAC) is available to the users. The library will soon implement computerized acquisition and circulation system.
