Digital Library

We are living in an age of information explosion where it has become almost impossible for any library or information centre to acquire and store all the literature even in single field. Keeping the same thing in mind the College authorities have decided to set up a Digital Library and has got the membership of DELNET. A Digital Library is a library where reading material is kept in the form of CDs, DVDs, databases and in other microforms. And the same is accessed with the help of computers. Our Digital Library has 22 well equipped computer systems and more than 400 non print materials covering various subjects.

Central Library has set up a cell for Digital Library within its premises. It works in two parts i.e. E-learning and DELNET. E-Learning is an on-line education program where the students can access various presentations, seminars, lectures etc. On the other hand, DELNET is a Developing Library Network which is highly helpful for resource sharing.
