The ground floor of the library also houses Manuscriptology section where conservation, digitization and showcasing of old manuscripts is done. The administrative, technical sections of the library and the Librarian's cabin are also located in the ground floor.
The Library follows Dewey Decimal Classification system for stacking the books in the book shelves and admirals. This is a popular system adopted in most of the libraries in India and elsewhere, where books are classified under various subject heads and stacked together.
Each book is given a unique number consisting of the first three letters of the author’s last name, classification number and accession numbers. These details are printed on label which is pasted on the spine of each book.
Now all the books are arranged sequentially based on these unique numbers. If for any reason you take out a book from the shelf, please remember it to place back in the exact place. Should you have any confusion about where it was, do not place it randomly; instead leave the book on the sorting tables. This will help to maintain the sequence of the books which in turn helps in easily locating the book in the shelf.
The Library adopts the use of surrogate cards in the PG library where Open Access system allows the students to directly approach the book shelves and choose the book they desire. For more details on the use of Surrogate Cards, refer to the section with that heading in the leaflet.
Whether you are looking to know the entire collection of the library or searching for a specific book, the best way to begin with is to search the computerized catalogue.
The Library provides Online Public Access Cataloguing (OPAC) facility. Simply put, it is searching the entire collection of library through a computer interface, just as you search any information on WWW using the Google search engine. There are specially designated computer systems available in the library for this purpose. Just enter in the details of the desired book and you get the list of books available in the library.
You can not only search a book by keying in the title of the book but also by entering the author’s name. In such a scenario, all the books of that author available in the library are displayed.
You can just search the entire collection of books under a particular subject head by simply choosing ‘subject’ from the menu. Searching a book using OPAC is very easy and instinctive. Yet, if you have any problem you can always ask for help at the library counters. We will be glad to assist you.
