Old Library



Library Information

College Library: The Library of the School of the Social Work, Roshni Nilaya was founded in 1960. It houses an outstanding array of books, papers, and other reference materials that are used not only by our students and staff, but also by alumni, former institutional employees, other academic scholars, and visitors.

The New Library: The ‘Adelaide Library' was erected to mark the Institution's Golden Jubilee celebration in May 2010. It has floors allocated to undergraduate and postgraduate departments, as well as a section assigned to doctoral students. It has all of the amenities that a library ought to have.

The Library is growing: There are 37,481 books, 106 subscribed journals, and 14 electronic journals in our list. Rare books, bound journals, Ph.D. theses, student dissertations, and thesis projects are all available in the library, as well as documentation files, seminar files, newspaper clippings files, and other resources.

At the library's entrance, newly purchased and recently published books are displayed to inspire patrons and encourage users to seek out new information

Computerization of the Library: ‘Autolib Software’ is used for library management. All books are bar-coded. This has facilitated easy access to various library services for all users for browsing Online Public Access Catalogue. The library is a member of the N-List programme and National Digital Library. There is a separate computer laboratory to access e-resources.
