About the Library

Delany Library was established in 2001. Currently, it is situated in the first floor of D block with an area about 3140sqft. All the library functions have been fully automated. Entry into the library and book transactions are done with RFID Technology - Smart card and Biometrics (finger print). Presently, the entire computerization activity of the library has been revamped with a specialized software - a comprehensive package with built in library modules suitable for the entire gamut of all library functions. Besides this, this software is more compatible with RFID Technology, which is a total security transaction module. Library is air-conditioned and under the surveillance of 10 CCTV cameras placed at strategic points. It is designed to accommodate 100 users at a time.

The library has various sections such as:
  • Book Acquisition Section
