Central Library

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.

There are many formalities to receive and leave the membership in the beginning and ending of studentship. The process is given below:

  • There are 2 identification cards. One is for using and reading in the library and another one is for taking the book in hall. Inside the library “Library Card” is used. That is provided by hall which is green. Another one is called “Hall Card” provided by library which is red. The process of having a “Hall Card” needs to sign an agreement which narrated that for any lose of the book using it in hall, the book holder will be charged. The payment must be through the bank.
  • Any kind of harm or lose of cards will be fine 50/- each. This payment also will be through the bank.
  • The Library authority needs 3 pp size photos (1is of Library Card and 2 are for Hall Card).
  •  When the studentship is over the authority needs to take the application to cancel the membership.
