About the College library

The college has a library since its inception and it has been named after the name of Pandit Bidhusekhar Sastri who is a renowned son of the soil. The college library houses near about 4000 books of different subjects. The college authority is trying hard to make more books available in the library. A number of books on competitive examinations have been purchased so that the students can read for getting through competitive examinations at an early stage. The library has separate space for reading for teachers and students. There is a fair number of reference books in the library. The students get the opportunity to read newspapers, magazines and journals in the library. The password for Economic and Political Weekly has been shared so that the students can read the soft version of the same using the computers in the library. Very soon, the library system is going to be automated by Koha LMS and facilitate the patron with OPAC services. The rise of ICT has broken the concept of the library as a closed space confined within the four walls and foregrounded the importance of E-resources. So, subscription to NLIST service (e-resources through INFLIBNET) be initiated soon by the college.
