The library has a rich collection of books (both text books and reference), periodicals, newspapers, e-resources and other non-book materials to cater to the information needs of the academic community of the institution. Apart from the print resources, the library facilitates access to e-resources for the users through annual subscription to National Library and Information Services Infrastructure for scholarly content (N-LIST). Moreover students are encouraged to make optimum use of the e-resources available through platforms like National Digital Library of India (NDLI), SWAYAM, Shodhganga, you tube channels of UGC-CEC, Vidya-Mitra, NPTEL, IGNOUSOSS, etc.

            The library is automated with the SOUL 2.0 software developed by the INFLIBNET centre. The process to set up a digital library through DSpace software is ongoing. At the beginning of a new academic session, the library authority organizes library orientation classes for the fresher students so that they can accustom themselves to explore the library resources and facilities. The library facilitates reading arrangements for the students with a seat capacity of 60 students and 15 faculty members at a time. In the form of reprographic service, the library facilitates xerox for students and staff at nominal price.
