This library is being automated through Koha (an Integrated Library Management Software)covering the service area such as OPAC, circulation transaction, technical processing, patron card creation etc. and digitised through Dspace (a digital software) from which some digital content may be searched and downloaded.
Some departments of this college have seminar libraries to cater for the needs of the departmental students.
