Library Cards: The College library provides book lending cards to its students which enable them to borrow books from the library. Two library cards are issued to each newly admitted 1st year degree student in the first week of September. To get such cards, a student needs to produce his/her college Identity Card and the Admission Receipt. One card is issued to each 1st year M.Sc. / M.A. student, after one month of admission, on production of similar documents as above. The library-card for M.Sc. / M.A., students are meant for two years and no renewal is necessary at the end of the 1st year.

Renewal of Cards: UG Students, moving to 2nd /3rd year degree classes, are required to renew their Library Cards, approximately in the first week of September.
