A library is a curated collection of sources of information and similar resources, selected by experts and made accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing, often in a quiet environment conducive to study.
Realizing the importance of a strong and active library/learning resource, the department has established a well equipped library catering to the requirements of the courses being offered. The main library is housed within the department building. The library is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM throughout the Monday to Friday. (Saturday only 9.00 AM to 2.00 PM)
The library is open for seven hours in a day throughout the Monday to Saturday, which facilitates the users to use the library at their convenient and preferable time. There are provisions for reading, reference section, lending section, journal section and the digital library. The computer technology is an integral part of a library and its educational resources. The campus is Wi-Fi enabled with an access to all the online databases subscribed by the JSS AHER.
The procurement of learning resources is carried out by a consultative process originating by a suggestion or a recommendation made by the user viz. students and staff. This then follows through a well-defined process of approval and procurement that ensures that the library caters to the need of the end users.
The comprehensive collection comprises of both traditional resources viz. books and journals in print resources. Electronic sources- e-books, e-journals and online databases. A modest collection of books for competitive exams is maintained. A user can relax with the library’s general collection of biographies, fiction, philosophy etc.
Information retrieval tools: An Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) of the library’s collection is provided in the library. A union catalogue of all the libraries of JSS Academy for Higher Education & Research is maintained.
The library provides a range of services through a team of dedicated library staff. The services aim to put information within easy reach.
