" These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves "

"Gilbert Highet"

Information is an essential input to national development. The modern library has great responsibility in harnessing and utilization of information. The library and information centers strive for high quality of library services which emphasis the actual delivery of information rather than actual delivery of documents for meeting their generic as well as specific needs of the users.

Durga Mahavidyalaya encourages every student to use the library that has been carefully built up since the inception of the college. At present this library has a stock of 57,000 volumes of books and about 5000 back volumes of scientific and technical periodicals. Information Resource Centre (Library) is located in the spacious section of the College building with facilited reading room. It has been systematically and steadily strengthened. The Durga Mahavidyalaya library follows the open access system, encouraging the user to brose freely in the stock area.

Standard text books and books by authors of repute in all fields taught at the college are stocked. The college follows a policy of buying multiple copies of many of these books to make them available to a large number of students. There is no question of budget approval when it comes to the buying of books.
