About Library

      The library came into existence with the establishment of the college and consisted of small room with small collection. But as the college grew, the management equally gave importance to the collection of books and development of the library. The library was shifted to the new building on the 15th June, 2009 with name of Smt. Gulabdevi Nathmalji Goenka Library who donated Rs. 2,51,000 for the development. The library is spacious with separate floor for reference books. Separate study compartments are available for boys, girls and research fellows.

      Today the library is having 17104 books and 11 research journals. Library is computerized with OPAC. E-access is also available through N-LIST. Biometric machine is available in the library to record daily accession by staff members. UGC’s Network Resource Center is there for students. The library has made considerable progress in library automation. The library automation will be followed by digital library which is our vision and not a dream.
