The most important advantage that a Library can offer to its readers is its open access or open shelf system. This system enables the users to have direct and easy access to the book collection. It encourages the users to develop a closer acquaintance with the diversity of information sources available in the Library. Keeping this in mind, the Library is practicing Open Access System.
CIRCULATION OF BOOKS:
The users are eligible to borrow books against identity card/borrower's ticket for a period of 15 days. The books kept in reference section and the periodicals normally will not be issued. However under certain conditions the reference textbooks are issued to the faculty for overnight reference and return. Those who fail to return/renew the books within a specified due date will be levied an overdue charge of Rs.1per book per day.
Some selected titles of new books acquired by the Library are displayed in 'New Arrivals' racks for the benefit of users. These books will be on display for at least one week and after that they will be made available to borrow.

Books on special occasions such as Independence Day, Gandhi Jayanthi, Dr. B.R.Amedkar Jayanthi etc., are selected and displayed in the library.

Newspaper clipping service is one of the most important services in a Library. The press clipping means the screening, scanning/cutting of news items etc., daily from newspapers in an organisation and sending them to the University officers, teachers regularly and to other administrative staff of the University on demand.
The Library maintains a separate reference collection consisting of encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, Competitive books, general books, handbooks, technical data, almanacs, atlases, bibliographies, etc. Reference service means "Process of establishing contact between a user and his requirements in a personal way". It is a personal service, which involves various activities, aimed at making information available to the users as easily as possible.
