Library and Information Centre



The Library and Information Centre established in the year 1985 with just 331 books has grown in number and also technically. At present library have more than 60,553 volumes and 24,401 Titles. The library staffs, led by Mr. Shambhu Gowda H.C., Librarian. The motto is, "Reading is a wellspring for achievers". A pleasant, inviting area, the library at GFGCVB's is a garden of knowledge.

                    The main strength of our department is fully automated library and also we have quality collection of resources.  A library is a treasure-house of knowledge and the backbone of a college academic environment. A well-stocked library is an asset to the college. The library is also a boon for poor students who cannot afford to buy books of their interest. The reference section accommodates 50 readers. Students can comfortably read the reference books, magazines, periodicals and newspapers. Back volumes of journals are available. The facility of “Open Access System” has been introduced whereby the readers have direct access to the cupboards and do the necessary reference. Reprographic and Internet facilities are also available in library. Computerized circulation counter is made available for issue, return and renewal of books. Educational CD/DVDs on different subjects are available for students use.

The Library not only provides the following facilities to all faculties and students but also has taken special initiative to meet the needs of researchers in the college who have taken up minor research projects.
