Good News for 4th and 5th Rank Holders !!

Dear studious students,

There is a good news for 4th and 5th rank holders (of any course)!! Yes, this year too we are issuing extra books to rank holders. But this time first five rank holders also come under this special provision. Now the aided section's students can borrow three books and unaided section's students can borrow four books each. Thanks to each and every member of our Library Advisory Committee which took this decision in a recently held meeting. So, we just wish to see you all on top again!!

(Note: Refer to the list of rank holders on Library's Notice Board on 2nd Aug, 2010).

Noted Writer and True Gandhian, Dr. N Radhakrishnan, Visits Our LInC

It was indeed a red letter day for us as Dr. N Radhakrishnan, Chairman of Indian Council of Gandhian Studies, New Delhi, visited our LInC on 24th July, 2010. He was in our college as Chief Guest for the Inaugural Programme of Centre of Gandhian Studies. After his surprising visit to the LInC, he expressed his feeling obout our LInc in the Visitor's Book as "Well kept library and I am delighted to see so many students using this facility, that too, at a time when reading habit is declining. Congrats. Keep up this great tradition. Good luck to the Principal, Management, Librarian and his staff".

Our Student Ms Nikita is Our Colleague Now !!

Yet another initiative by our college this year. Unlike education institutes abroad, our college has also introduced part-time job opportunity for our students in the college campus. We indeed appreciate our Principal and the members of Management.

This year we have appointed five such students who are working in the different sections in the campus. Let me introduce Ms. Nikita Rathod, who is one among them, working in our LInC for four hours everyday. Ms. Nikita has scored 86% in HSC and all other four students are meritorios too!! She is pursuing her degree in BScIT from our college along with the duty. All are drawing stipend for their service in the college. So meet Ms.Nikita in our library, who is presently busy in preparing Borrowers' IDs, and you (needy and interested) may also join us in the coming academic year !!!

LInC Subscribes Ebrary Database for IT/CS Courses

Now our BSC IT & Computer Science and MSc IT students/faculty will surely feel elated to access Ebary (commercial) database which comprises 4,000+ e-books in Computer Science and IT. The best advantage is that the students/faculty can now access the e-books right from their home and campus too!! We request them to meet us and discuss about the database. We are pleased to give orientation of Ebrary.
