The SDMCU library, the powerhouse of the institution, is a pride of our college. Our library is housed in a state of art 11,860 sq.ft building with all modern amenities and facilities having a seating capacity of 400 users. It has more than 80,000 collections which include rare books, periodicals, thesis, dissertation, bound volumes of journals, student research projects, American library article collections, book bank books, departmental annual reports and non book materials like E-journals, E-books, and CAL packages.
Inter-library membership is a facility through which libraries can share our resources and make a wide range of them accessible to our students. Through this collaborative facility, libraries can ensure maximum reach of distinctive resources to deserving students, no matter where they are located. SDMCU library has inter-library memberships with a number of entities-
EERPMS, software developed in-house allows complete automation of the SDMCU library ranging from acts of automated borrowing of books to ensuring that every student spends at least 40 hours a month using library’s resources. This system enables the library to keep a check on stock and generate reports on trends of library usage at frequent intervals. Through this system, we identify best library users at the end of every month through the automated facility.
SDMCU library also has DSpace, a digital library setup that houses student research projects, CAL packages, E-journals, E-books and content related to science and technology; freely accessible for all students.
The library conducts an orientation program for all newly admitted students at the beginning of the academic year. The library staffs familiarize the students with all the facilities, responsibilities, regulations and benefits related to library usage. This tradition has ensured that students are well aware of all dynamics of the library and make the best use of it.
The library stays open all days of the year, including holidays.
