Welcome to Central Library, Doon University

 

 

-About the Library:

The library is an important aspect of any academic institution. The Universities are often known for their library resources. It is their endeavor to make the library a rich source of information not only for the teaching faculty and the students but also for the researchers across the academic fraternity. Keeping this in mind the Central Library of Doon University was set up in the year 2009 to support the teaching- learning process in the University, and since then the Library has been consistently making efforts to develop a strong collection of learning resources and to provide access to knowledge through its services. The Library is broadly divided into four parts; Textbook Section, Periodical Section, Book Bank Section, and Reference Section. All sections combined have a large number of printed documents, including textbooks, reference books, reports, yearbooks, manuals, case studies, Bound volumes, and periodicals. The Textbook section consists of books of all the UG/PG courses covered by the different schools of the university and one can issue a permissible number of books from this section as per the rules of the University.

In order to support the teaching and research process of the University, the Library is subscribing both print and electronic-based journals, a total of 76 print periodicals and 1500 e-journals are subscribed by the library, apart from this Library also provides access to more than 5000 e-journals through INFLIBNET consortia. These research journals can also be accessed remotely which is very important for the faculty, students, and researchers who are staying outside the campus.

The Library has made significant developments in terms of integrating ICT in library and information services; the library is using Library Management Software LibSys10 for its housekeeping and other activities. OPAC of LMS is also available on the university intranet for searching books of the Library. ICT is also used in the Library services, and automatic delivery of email and SMS to the user of their library transaction are some visible examples of this.
