“The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries” - Carl Sagan

Library plays a very crucial role in supporting the academic programmes of the institution. It procures, identifies, processes, evaluates and makes available these learning resources to the faculty and students for their teaching, learning and research. That is why, DR. S. R. Ranganathan, father of library Science in India remarked that “the Library is the trinity of Learning Resources, Faculty/Students and the Library Staff”.

The total collection of the Central Library is above 53,370 and it is segregated into various sections as per Dewey Decimal Classification for the convenience of organization and reader’s services. The OPAC searching facility helps the user community to identify and locate a particular title as per their interest.

General Collection

The general collection housed in the ground floor provides theoretical exposure to various disciplines. There are both Academic and General books available in this section (issue section). The books from the Issue Section can be taken out for reading.

Reference Collection

The resources of the Reference Section contain a sizeable reference collection for quick retrieval of information through encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, yearbooks, textbooks, reference books etc. in different spheres of knowledge. It is the policy of the AJCE Central Library to update these reference sources periodically. These books cannot be taken outside.

Rare Books Collection

The Rare Book Collection of Amal Jyothi College of Engineering Central Library has books in the fields of literature, history, art, theology, technology, and the natural sciences. The mission of The Rare Book Collection is to make its collections accessible to all who wish to learn and to preserve these collections for future users.

Special Collection – Non-Print Materials

In addition to normal printed documents AJCE Central Library has also developed non-print media collection. In this collection about 2509 CD-ROMs are available. For accessing the list of CD-ROMs.

Information Technology Applications at the Central Library

In addition to the collection development process, the AJCE Central Library has been venturing into the field of Information and Communication Technology by providing strong infrastructure support to use IT gadgets. The Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) has been activated. It has bibliographical records of books and other materials available in the Central Library. To access the OPAC click the link below

Serials Collection

The Serials Division of Amal Jyothi Central Library has 181 National Periodicals in various Engineering streams, including popular magazines and daily newspapers in English and regional language. These materials are meant for reference purpose only and cannot be taken out of the Library. The library subscribes to various journals from publishers like Indian Academy of Science, Indian Institute of Science, Springer India, IETE, Indian Roads Congress, CSIR-NISCAIR, CPRI, etc….

NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning)

The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), proposed for the first time in 1999 by Professor M. S. Ananth, Director, IIT Madras and funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, has developed curriculum based course contents for more than 240 engineering courses in five disciplines at the undergraduate level. The programme has been executed jointly by all seven Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The disciplines covered are Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Core science, Management Studies and Language courses that all engineering students are required to take. The video courses in the programme comprises of approximately 40 one-hour lectures for each course. The contents are based on the model curriculum suggested by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities.

Meaningful growth of an institute depends on the kind of commitment it has made to the society at large. Benefits of academic excellence cannot remain restricted to the boundaries of the academic wall. Keeping this objective in mind, in 2008 the Central Library purchased more than 3000 video lectures covering 40 subjects from IIT Madras which are available in our digital repository.
