Cataloguing Systems of the library
Card catalogue:

For easy location of books, the library maintains a card catalogue that provides alphabetical list of books on card under Author, Subject and Title including Edition and Place of Publication, Publisher, Year of Publication and Number of Pages. This can greatly help researchers to prepare bibliography relating their research assignments. The catalogue can be consulted quite easily just like a dictionary. It also helps a reader to locate a book of her/his interest on the shelf with the help of a classification number written on the left hand side corner of the card.

Analytical catalogue:
