Central Library

With the establishment of university in 1975, an idea of a central library also emerged. But it could be actualized only after the university attained its residential character in 1985 and thus central library came into existence in a rudimentary form in the administrative block. In 1989, the then vice-chancellor Dr. B. B. Singh Bisen took an initiative to differentiate the library from other offices of the administrative block and appointed an O.S.D. especially for the library. Later on, it was decided that separate building for the library may be constructed. On 29th November, 1994 the then Chairman of UGC Prof. G. Ram Reddy laid the foundation stone of library building and on completion it was inaugurated by the then Governor and Chancellor of U.P. Shri Romesh Bhandari on 13th February, 1997. With the rapid development of the university, library needed much more space therefore the then vice-chancellor Prof. Z. H. Zaidi took necessary step in 2003 for the expansion of building. The expanded portion was completed in 2005 and was inaugurated by the then Vice President of India Shri Bhairon Singh Shekhavat on 4th February, 2005. Besides this, departmental/seminar libraries are also established in some departments viz. Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Education and Allied Sciences, Faculty of Management, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Science and Faculty of Science. The central library is being administered by Honorary Librarian with the help of Assistant Librarian and ten supporting staff.
