Library Committee

The status of health literature, library and information services cannot be improved unless and until  the Library Committee executes its governance. The Library Committee is empowered to make/frame/amend rules and regulations of the library. A committee is a forum comprising of knowledgeable persons who may be assigned particular tasks with matching powers. Generally, such committees are given advisory functions with supervisory powers. It studies the library needs in view of the instructional, research and service programs of the institute and advises the Dean on matters of policy, development of library resources which may also include integration of the library program with other instructional, research and service activities. The Committee liaises with the faculty, staff and students, and the librarian.

The Library Committee is empowered to formulate general library policies and regulations for efficient use of library resources, preparation of budget proposals for the development of library infrastructure, acquisition of books/journals including in electronic formats, updating of library collection as per need of library users, acquisition of  furniture, equipment and supplies, automation of library activities, appointment of library personnel, formulation of job profiles, library timings, and submission of annual report on the functioning of the library. Besides, it considers all matters/instructions concerning the library management and information services referred by the Academic Council or the Vice-Chancellor.

The Committee is responsible for policy formulation and oversees its implementation. The Librarian acts as the secretary/convener of the committee and provides reliable information to the committee which does not interfere in the day to day working of the library except through the Librarian. The library has a Library Advisory Committee headed by the Dean.
