The book collection of the library consists of books, back-volumes of periodicals, theses, conference proceedings, reports etc. Except reference collection, all the books are available on the first floor of the Learning Centre. Reference books have been kept on the ground floor.
Books are arranged by decimal numbers using Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) scheme. Each book is assigned a DDC number which represents the subject of the book. On the shelves, the books are then arranged according to the numbers which are indicated on the spine of the books. Please consult Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) to check the availability and location of a book.
