All students, including those enrolled in part time and evening courses, are encouraged to use these unique facilities for their studies, research and collaborative ventures. It is an opportunity that is not to be missed for anything. In addition to traditional books, the library also subscribes to scientific and technical journals, research periodicals, standards published by national and  international bodies such as IEC, ANSI, ISO, NFPA and others.
