The library, an important component of our Departments’ system of education, provides knowledge and a student’s guide to a better standard of learning. It is a bright, inviting room. Books, magazines and periodicals are there in large numbers and in a wide variety. Its extension is more of a comfortable reading room including a wide selection of reference books. The library is staffed by qualified librarians who are ready to help the students and give them access to a wide range of resources for study and research.


As such, it is important that the Libraries establish and maintain an atmosphere that allows all users to access the resources and to study, read, and concentrate without undue difficulty, noise or distraction. To do so, rules of appropriate library conduct must be observed by all.

• Loud conversation (i.e. that which can be easily and clearly overheard by others in nearby work areas) is prohibited.
• To protect our books and other materials and equipment: eating and drinking in the Libraries is prohibited. (Exception: water, if in a closed container)
• To maintain a smooth and safe flow of traffic: Stairs and walk areas must be kept clear.
Rearrangement of seating, if it blocks traffic flow, is not permitted.

• Sitting on carrels and desktops is prohibited.
• If mobiles are brought into the Libraries, the ringers/sound must be turned off.
• Mobiles may only be used in the Library stairwells. Repeated infractions will be reported to the Dean of Students for action.
