UKS library came in to existence since the inception of the institution in 2012. It has a collection of 2000 plus books and over 38 both national and international periodicals.

The total area of the library including the reading room and lending section is 316.9 sq mts. The “Knowledge Resource Centre”, heart of any institution is important for dissemination of information. Facilities like book-bank, references and extended timings during examinations is a positive feature for the students. The library also has a database of books including e-books and e-journals which can be accessed easily. Reading room has a capacity of 120 at any point of time.

 

Automation of institutional library is extremely important in this age of technology. Remarkable growth in the different fields of knowledge has led to a need for access of the desired literature. The Institution has taken initiative to bring automation in library management through software. The Library automated software is designed and developed to suit the institutional requirement. It is difficult to access the desired literature through manually operated devices. Institution, therefore, has introduced software named KOHA (fully automated) which is operational since 2018-19. All the work related to issue and return of books has been computerized. Books are bar-coded. KOHA Software is a totally integrated Library Management software package encompassing all aspects of library management. This software provides precious tools to all its members to have access to the resources at one’s fingertips. The software is compliant to international standards for bibliographic formats, networking and circulation protocols. The software was designed to aid users to export their search results in to PDF, MS Excel and MARCXML format.
