In the past few years, procedures for digitizing books at high speed and comparatively low cost have improved considerably. The result is that we can now digitize millions of books per year for creating digital libraries.

Our Digital library has over 3000 e-books available round the clock through a FTP server on the intranet, whereby students can access the material and books anytime from anywhere on the campus.


The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), video-based teaching material by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) and Technical Teacher Training Institutes (TTTI), is also available in the library. This keeps students and faculties abreast with new technologies and provides them with better understanding of the same.
