book bank scheme

SNSCN Central Library maintains a book bank scheme mainly of undergraduate level text books to help students. This scheme runs on the premise that each student should posses at least one text book for each subject throughout his/her 4 years of study. Procuring these books from the distributors is an arduous and expensive proposition and also some editions are not available in the market. Book bank scheme is devised to overcome this problem. Each and every student is benefited through this facility. The library issues a circular in the beginning of every semester and all the students may avail the benefit as per the schedule announced by therein.


Principal, HODs and faculty members recommend the best books that cover the entire syllabus of the subject as per Anna University. These books are purchased and accessioned in the central library and issued to each student (one set) through concerned department for a period of one semester. At the end of the semester the student has to return all the books and then books of the next semester are issued on the 1st day of the semester.


Every academic year, up to the month of July, applications in prescribed form are invited from the students admitted in SNSCN. The collected application forms are verified and then in the first week of August a schedule of distribution for each class is made. The students are expected to return the books issued to them immediately after the end of their semester examination.


If any damage found in the book at the returning time the student will be penalized as per library norms. This amount is collected and then spent for binding of used books and purchase of new copies. Because of this policy the books are preserved and increased every year.

LIBRARY services

The groundwork for the computerization of the library was started with the manual entry of the details of the books. These details were fed in the data entry terminals and stored. The automation work gained momentum with accuracy by the provision of assistance from commercial software of CAPMPUS i LIB. The library has its own sub LAN consisting of 7 terminals, one server to support library software, OPAC services and other in-house computerization activities are done within the library. Web Based OPAC has been created for all the resources available in the library. Data can be accessed from various search points. Circulation activities were computerized providing statistics on the issue and return of books. Introduction of barcode technology helped to achieve maximum efficiency in providing accuracy, speed and reliability in issue and return procedure.
