All these years, it has been the lifeline for the academic activity of the institute. At present , it stands as one of the best libraries in terms of the number of books and journals, an undergraduate degree engineering college can have a modem library with a lot of automation. Central Library serves the academic needs of about 1879 UG students and nearly 114 faculty members and about 56 technical, administrative staff of our institute. Beside, its services are extended to a number of other organizations also.
