All the new books are put on display on every Monday, for the duration of a week on an open rack in the library so as to notify the users of their presence and availability. They can be borrowed after the display period gets over.
Reference book collections
Reference books include encyclopaedias, dictionaries, and some rare and important and out of print books, which must be referred to only in the Reading Room. Reference books can only be taken out with prior permission.
The library subscribes to over a hundred periodicals, which are bifurcated as journals and magazines and are arranged alphabetically in the Reading Room. No current periodical can be taken outside the library without permission.

Books aren’t the only items in the library. The library also has a huge collection of other important data in the form of company reports, annual publications by corporates and an equally well compiled electronic collection.
