LEARNING RESOURCE CENTRE (LRC)

The LRC came to existence with the inception of the college in the year 1971. Only a handful of books were available at the beginning. Later on, the LRC put the focus on versatile collection development and very shortly it achieved the same.
The LRC has the vision to develop ICT – Driven Centre which provides the most user-friendly environment for learning, teaching and research so that the LRC becomes the centre of scholarly activities in the college for all streams. The increasing reliance on electronic resources leads to a shift towards access to information rather than storage. This requires an information infrastructure which satisfies today’s needs and tomorrow’s demands so that the researchers can spend less time searching for information and more time upon output and experimentation.
The Learning Resource Centre is situated on the ground floor and 1st floor of the college. It has a spacious Reading Room and Stack Room. The collection of books is arranged according to space availability and student’s convenience.
