Jahangirnagar University has a big library having a huge collection of book established in 1985. It is behind the monument of “Sangshaptak”. The whole area is covered with Wi-Fi technology. There are more than 110,000 books and 14,000 hard bound journals and 22,000 online journals in the library. More than 170 students can seat and study in the library. There is also a Cyber Center in the premises of the library.
There are 41 staffs and 13 officers working hard enough to maintain this huge library in order to create a studious culture in the campus and offering us a huge opportunity to study hard.
The future plan of the library authority is to extend the library building and make the whole system computerized. Then it would be easier to lend the library books and the system would be more efficient.
