It is a well established modern library catering to the information needs of the academic community of the University. The library initiated the computerization operation in April 1989 and could make a significance headway in the application of modern information technology in information management to cope with the ever increasing flow of information. The whole collection of the library is computerized and OPAC is electronically accessible.

Faster ISDN connectivity was introduced on March 27,2003. Later on May 10,2005, the connectivity was taken from Computer & Instrumentation Centre, through 2 Mbps leased line from BSNL. The use of this facility is encouraging. By availing this facility, the participation of scientists in national and international conferences was reported to have increased and publication of papers similarly expedited. Ours is the first SAU library in the country which has been converted in to Wi-Fi Library in 2003-2004 besides introducing SOUL (Software for University Libraries) to facilitate its automation functions.

Jul 23,2008 through CERA:Consortium for e-Resources in Agriculture; all the Ph.D theses w.e.f. 2000 onwards wree digitized under ICAR Krishi-Prabha Project. For linking the Regional Research Stations of the university with the library, the connectivity facilities have been established at the Regional Stations of the University, so that the scientists / Staff working there can access the latest information and be in a position to communicate fast through E-Mail.

The library is housed in a beautiful and modular building which offers excellent environment for study. It has plinth area of 3975 sq. mts. and reading space of 665.60 sq. mts.

MULTIMEDIA CENTRE
Multimedia is the integration of text, graphics, sound, animation and video to convey information. The technology savvy library of the University has established the Multimedia Centre with a total cost of Rs.60 Lakhs funded by ICAR.

The objectives of the centre are to create digital databases and products; collect digital resources in textual, audio-video or produced in any other formats useful to the academic community of the University supporting and strengthening teaching, research and extension education; provide access to e-contents, e-knowledgebase including multimedia contents; and to establish linkage to ICAR-net, ICAR-e-journals consortium, Regional Research Stations and other related institutions.
