Central Library

“Bad Libraries build collections. Good Libraries build services. Great Libraries build communities.” – R. David Lankes
Welcome to the online doorway of Poornima University Library. Poornima University Library was established in 2012 with the aim of imparting pragmatic education. In its magnificent journey of 09 years, PU Library has set benchmarks and reached new pinnacles in education with dedication, perseverance, and devotion. To make the library operation smoothly technology is very helpful. Automation of the library helps and takes some of the workload off of librarians and other staff members in the areas of acquisitions, cataloging, and circulation, which in turn allows them to better serve their patrons. This extra time can lead to more programs being facilitated in the library and make library staff available to answer reference questions and help people who are having trouble researching or finding the right information. It is also helpful for users. Poornima University Library has ‘KOHA’ ILMS facility. Open access facility available for user for selection.
In order to meet the contemporary needs of the library user, the central library offers the following value-added services: Current Awareness Service, E-Books Access, E-Journal [Full-text] Access, Higher Education Service, Inter-Library Loan Service, Internet Service, News Paper Clippings, Research and Reference Service, Reprography Service, Service for Career & Placement Aids.
