Need of a Library

“Library is a medium for the current exchange of ideas, not just for finished collected wisdom to be set down imperishably for posterity. It is way of talking to one another - important talking, but tentative talking nonetheless. Eventually, when the excitement is largely gone and the subject all wrapped up, then for the most part it will appear in books that are treatises.” Library is a service institution. Library services are one of the most widely used and accepted in the modern world. Academic community particularly in a university utilizes library services for research and teaching purposes. Academic work is supported by library. Therefore, library is rightly regarded as the heart of an academic institution. College library is an integral part of collegiate education.
