Library’s goal is to make all our students Information rich. “Silence, Service, User education” are the three important functions on which the library and Information center operates. It is true that Information center is the heart of any institution. An Institution can get its name and fame through a well equipped library and its services. The library is situated in the right wing of the main building spread over 819.15 sq,m with a seating capacity of 150.
