“Life happened because I turned the pages”
Information is one of the most important ingredients of our academic activities. Information leads to the generation of knowledge. An academic institution always takes necessary steps to gather or procure relevant bits of knowledge from various sources. Needless to say it is the Library and Information Centre of the institution that is entrusted with the task of procuring, organizing and displaying the various sources of knowledge in different media and also disseminating them to the users. Library is considered to be a “Delivery Room for the Birth of Ideas”. Without a good library, no education system is complete and perfect. I invite you to visit the library in order to enjoy the wealth of information resources available in the library in various forms.
