A library is considered the heart of an institution and storehouse of knowledge. The basic objective of the library is to disseminate knowledge among its users and to help individuals to discover themselves.
The College has a semi-automated library providing services through both manual and IT-based systems. At present, our library has more than 5000 books that cover a wide range of disciplines and subjects, including the five courses offered in the College. Besides, the library has a good collection of ready reference books such as encyclopaedias, dictionaries and yearbooks. The library also subscribes to two daily newspapers in English and Nepali. Apart from books, the library also offers a reading room facility. The users, including the teachers, are allowed to borrow more than one book at a time against a reference cards.
Computerization of Library – Library Automation
The College has been taking appropriate steps to computerize and digitalise the library. The work-related to the retrospective conversion of the library collection is an ongoing process. The retrospective conversion of library catalogue from manual to machine-readable format is being done by using Koha software. OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue) is also planned to be provided to users in the near future.
The library is endowed with four dedicated staff, including a librarian, who has been striving hard to meet the pressing demands of the students and teachers by rendering various library services. Despite infrastructural limitations, our library staff have been helping and assisting the users in a personalized and hospitable atmosphere. As a part of future plan, we are also looking forward to offering the best digitized and modern library services to our students, teachers and staff.
The library is open on all working days from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
