The Library of the College was established in 1964,the same year of the College foundation. It was founded for realizing the institutional mission and vision of contributing to the academic pursuits of the students, the faculty member, and the office staff. Started with a humble beginning, the Library has come a long way in terms of quality and quantity of subscription of books, journals, ·sappers, periodicals, e-resources, etc. and has catered to the diverse needs of the students and teaching community.
The existing library building of the College was constructed in the year 1981 to support the
limited number of students of that time. With the introduction of semester system in Degree courses, we have been rendering our devoted services to the stake-holders including basically the students, teachers and the staff members.
The Library is run by a Library Committee with funds received from the Government, UGC, Alumni Association and fees collected from the students. It is being conducted by the Librarian, Library Assistant, a Bearer and a contractual Library Assistant cum computer operator.
Presently, a number of facilities have been opened up for the students and others in the
Library. These include reprographic facility, internet surfing/downloading/printing, access to resources like e-journals, etc. The automation of the Library is going on.
Keeping in tune of its mission and vision, the Library has opened a special collection of books, magazines, souvenirs, documentary, etc. pertaining to the locality of Bokakhat. In addition to it, another special collection of books, souvenirs, articles, seminar papers, video CDs, documentary, etc. on the Kaziranga National Park is being mooted and we wish it will materialize soon.
In order to create awareness and give a boost to the general reading habits of the students
and others, the Library has been organizing book fairs, quiz competitions, etc. in the College premises in collaboration with Book Publishers like Satirtha . It has also organized recitation, popular lectures, etc. to commemorate the occasions.
It needs to be mentioned that in its onward march towards improvement and up gradation, the Library has been getting the sincere help and cooperation of the Alumni Association since
2002. It has donated books and equipment to the Library. The present Committee of the Association has already started a year-long programme of collecting/donating books for the needy students. We hope to sustain the same pace of development in the near future.
