The Central Library has been established in the year 2002-03 jointly of the information service centers chiefly line of work to the education and learning wants of the scholars from the under graduates to post graduates and afterward to research levels of the S R Engineering college. The Library primarily aims at providing high quality learning material in the variety of Books, Journals and others relevant to the program and syllabus of varied disciplines of Engineering and Technology offered by the college, to its students, faculty members.
Knowledge is ever growing. It has been impossible to acquire all knowledge resources that are required by students and faculty in a single library due to several factors. The Central Library has a well defined acquisition policy. It strives to acquire maximum knowledge resources in core areas of the college in which it imparts education and learning to its student community. The library budget has been systematically planned and spent as per the policy plan.
The Library started with a meager collection of books in 2002-03. It has increased its collection in no time to the present collection of about 25,000 books and 300 current periodicals and 5000 items of other reading material.
The Central Library provides readers services by organizing its collection on scientific methods practised by reputed libraries in the country. The services have been gradually automated to save the time of the reader - a principle envisaged in the fundamental principles of library and information sciences.
The library has future plans to become a fully automated and developed library to cater to the wide and varied information needs of education and learning programmes in Engineering and Technology disciplines of all levels from undergraduate to research leading to Ph.D.
The library will become a Digital Library with ON-LINE access to all the reading material in e-format by the students and faculty from their respective departments to facilitate awareness on their state-of- the-art.
