Profile of the College Library

 

LibraryA library is the fountain head of knowledge. It is a collection of the intellects of generations of genius. It is a source of solace and delight to those who are thirsty of knowledge. A library caters for all kinds of knowledge enthusiasts. It does not take into consideration race, religion, caste, status, sex or age whenever the person approaches it. Here knowledge is free and is thrown open to axis of everybody who is desirous of acquiring it.

 The history of the library takes back to the Egyptian civilization when lovers of knowledge inscribed information on mud tablets dried and backed them to preserve them for the posterity. This was called the tablet library. Later the library had undergone many revolutionary changes. Writings on animal parchment, writing on Palmira leaves which were preserved in big pots, writing on papyrus were some milestones in publication of knowledge to be placed to the axis of public: Now the latest form of library is the Electronic Library. Books are dispensed with monitors, C.D’s, V.C.D’s, film rolls. Internet connections. On-line libraries etc. constitute the modern library, saving incredibly enormous storing place and the odious burden of preservation from various dangers that the upkeep of books is brought with.
