General Library

The General Library is presently situated in the Clock Tower Building.  It was established in the British era and is privileged to have the collection of 67607 text books and 1250 reference books, with a total of 68,857 books. Among those vast numbers of books, a few books deserve notice.

It houses sufficient collection of rare books.  Many of them were purchased during the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, which are now out of print. Besides, the department libraries of English, Tamil and History contain some rare books, which are out of print today.  

Library is automated using Integrated Library Management System (ILMS)

The General Library has implemented and installed the automation software, Koha 16.05 Version. It plans to maintain Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) for online search of available books in library. The library will subscribe the UGC—INFLIBNET,  N-List e- resources which includes e-journals, e-books and online resources.  It aims to form and maintain the Digital Library after completion of library automation process and subscription of e-resources.

The M.Phil Dissertation and Ph.D theses of faculty and students and student projects are available in department libraries to facilitate and encourage research.
