Circulation Section    Home

       This section represents the hub of library activities where lending out of books to readers is facilitated.  Of all the library activities, the circulation of books for home use is a major public service provided by the library. Nearly all the members of the library visit this section for getting books on loan for home use at one or the other time.

          In the circulation Section various functions are undertaken viz. Registration of new members, lending of books, reminders for overdue books, reservation of books, renewal of membership cards, records and files, statistics and inter library loans etc.  Since July 1997 most of these functions are done on computers in addition the same being done manually.




 Since 1997 all the circulation section functions have been computerized to give faster service to our members. Three computers have been installed exclusively for the members to search books by title author, keywords and subject through OPAC (On-Line Public Acess Catalogue)
