About University Library :
The University Library came into existence with the establishment of the Rani Channamma University on 9th September 2010. Till then it was functioning as a Karnatak University, Kittur Rani Channamma Post-Graduate Centre Library. In the midst of its excellent setup of academic activities, the library acts as a nerve centre catering to the academic and research needs of the students, the researchers and the faculty members of post-graduate departments, covering Science, Social Science, and Humanities, engaged in higher pursuit of knowledge.
