Welcome to the Library and Information Division of SJCET. It was established in the year 2002, and serves as a knowledge hub containing resources not only in the form of print but also in e-resources and provides students with access to a vast repository of resources, including books and Journals both print and online. In any academic institution Library plays an important role in the dissemination of knowledge. In fact, the ambiance of the library reflects the quality of the education imparted by the College. SJCET has recognized the importance of the academic vibrations required in the library and has been growing in this direction, right from its very inception. Library is a member of National Library Network-DELNET. Information from National Program on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), National Digital Library of India (NDLI) and other Electronic Resources are also available for the user community. Only Library members are allowed to access all materials such as Books, Journals, Magazines, Digital materials and E-Journals etc. available in the library collection. The Library reading space can accommodate more than 200 students. Library functions such as Acquisition, Circulation, and Cataloguing have been automated using KOHA, an Integrated Library Management System (ILMS) with Web OPAC.


The College has built a spacious Central Library spanning a total floor area of 1088 sq.m. Combining aesthetics with utility, the modern Library houses more than 63,950 documents consisting of Technical Books, E- books, Full Text E-Resources, Bibliographic Data- bases, Journals both print and on-line, Digital resources, Standards and back volumes of journals. The library subscribes to more than 110 printed journals and technical magazines. Library follows the open access system. The Library also subscribes to E-Books and E-Journals. The Library is Automated with provision for Research Scholars Cubicle, Stack Section, Reference Section, and Circulation Section with computers and other peripherals connected in LAN. It also has a Photo- copier installed to enable students to make printouts/copies.
