Campus Library is situated at Kariavattom campus. It was started in 1976 mainly to extend the library facilities to the campus community. It was envisaged as a reference collection initially stocking important reference books and textbooks prescribed for the various courses and materials useful for research scholars with a view to supplement the library resources of the departments. The selection, ordering and technical processing of the documents are carried out by the library independently and it has its own budget allocation. Still it continues to be a reference library and was put in charge of controlling the campus LAN. In addition to the reference facility, the library provides reprographic, internet and UGC-Infonet E-Journal services. The space constraint which was the main hurdle in the development of the library is over with the commissioning of the two storied new building with an area of 1238 sq.m in 2006. It has a modest collection of over 7000 books and subscribes to over 60 periodicals.
