About Central Library

Today, information is one of the most important ingredients of our academic activities. Information leads to the generation of knowledge. An academic institution always takes necessary steps to gather or procure the relevant bits of knowledge from the various sources. Needless to say it is the library / information centre of an institution that is entrusted with the task of procuring, organizing and displaying the various sources of knowledge in different media and also disseminating them to the users. So we called library is a backbone of an education institution.

The AIET library has a modern and well-equipped building, which offers excellent infrastructure facilities in reading, borrowing and reference to the users of all the AIET library members.

Central Library is one such library which strives to update information sources and media for the users. In this sense the Central Library may be aptly called Storehouse of knowledge, Temple of knowledge.

This Central Library located at the heart of the Institution is easily accessible to the department, class rooms, and hostels. The building occupies a total area of about 1540 sq.mt and has 1st floor. The building has a seating capacity for more than 300 users at a time.

Over 19000 volumes and 80 current journals / periodicals are available. The library has fully automated with barcode reader and automated circulation facility with OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue). It’s also kept pace with modernization by introducing CD-ROM database, Internet and e-mail facilities to the user community.
