OUR DIGITAL LIBRARY
From the Librarian’s Desk:
A well equipped and well managed library is the foundation of modern educational structure. According to Prof. D.S.Kothari, Chairman of Indian Education Commission (1964-66)-“A Library Should provide facilities and services that are necessary for formal education and which open the vast world of books to readers beyond their area of specialization so that, reading habits are encouraged among the students and researchers for entertaining self awareness, personal development and mental curiosity also encouraged among them”.
