 CENTRAL LIBRARY

The University Library system was initiated in the year 1961 after the establishment of the University of Kalyani in the year 1960. The present library building was inaugurated in the year 1979. Now the Central Library is a three storied building.

Central Library was established in order to meet the academic and research needs of the Teachers, Research Scholars, the Students and other staff members. In a lively University campus, the Central Library serves as the hive of academic activities for students, scholars, staff and faculty members in pursuit of excellence in their respective area of studies. Central Library provides books, journals as well as current information on various topics to fulfill the needs of the University Community.

There is a departmental reference library in each academic department. It is a matter of hope that the provision of supervision of departmental reference libraries by professional staff under the direct control of the Central library has been envisaged in the new statue.

There is a Library committee to regulate the policy and planning process and all the developmental activities of the library. It renders instructions regarding management of funds set apart for the functioning of the University Library system. The Chairman of the Library Committee is the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor and the ex-officio Secretary is Librarian of the Central Library.

In June, 2008 the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) team visited Central Library and appreciated various activities and the services rendered by the Central Library.
