Started since the year 2002. Upto 2006 the College Central Library was partially automated where circulation is done for teaching faculties only. From 2007 onwards the Library was fully automated using the customized software LMS (Library Management Software). It was later upgraded to a new version which is fully automated and renamed as E-LIB.

In the year 2019, the library committee felt the need to upgrade the library software as per the current trend which is widely used by libraries all over the world. KOHA, an open source software(customized) was installed. The entire collection of the library has been migrated, exported and conversion of the existing data is being transferred from E-LIB (An existing software) to KOHA software by Avior Technologies, Kolkata.

  1. General collection (Science, Arts and languages including Sanskrit)
  2. Reference collection
  3. Rare collection
  4. North East collection
  5. Career and counselling collection
  6. Government publications

The college is illegible to access the E-Resources sponsored by the INFLIBNET subscribed through the UGC-INFONET Library Consortium and INDEST AICTE Consortium since 2009 and till date. All the teaching staff and the students are the members to the N-List Inflibnet and eligible to use as all has been assigned own login ID and password and can access from anywhere.
