Librarian’s Message

The primary aim of an institutional library is to aid and support the academic programmes offered and administer all facets of the Learning Resources. Thus IMS Library imparts leading knowledge to develop appropriate attitude, skills and competencies to meet corporate and organizational requirements to develop the overall personality of students so as to make them responsible citizens.

It is a celebration of Librarianship and also showcases the library staff’s selfless and diligent contributions and invaluable service.

The academic scenario, over the years, has undergone a tremendous change and therefore continuous education is the need of the hour. The Library reflects the diversity and character, and the needs and expectations of our users.  Those needs and expectations are often extensive, and the services are invaluable. The purpose of the institutional library is to familiarize the users i.e. students, staff and stakeholders with the reading culture, search strategy, building informal education by conducting information literacy programs, professional deliberations and usage of tools and technologies in accessing E-resources like E-Books, E-Journals, E-Library, Online Databases, and Streaming Videos with current tools and technologies in better and effective utilization of resources and gearing up for skill based knowledge and leadership qualities.

Today’s libraries are all about Transition, Exploration, Planning, Survival, Optimism and Opportunities and Librarians are Linking Ideas Between Readers And Resources .i.e. Informing, Enriching, Sharing!
