Membership Registration

Students are enrolled at the beginning of a new academic year, subject to the receipt of confirmed details of such students by the student welfare branch of the university.

Staff members are registered by submitting the duly completed application form after the receipt of a copy of the letter of appointment from the establishment branch of the university.

Library tickets are not transferable. The holder of library tickets is responsible for any library material issued under such tickets and therefore should protect them with utmost care. Use of the library tickets of another person is a punishable offense.

The loss of library tickets should be reported to the librarian immediately. Duplicate copies can be obtained only after three months times upon the payment of Rs. 25.00 replacement charge. The library tickets should be returned to the library reader services section after the final examination and appropriate entries are to be endorsed in the student record books by the library staff.

As it is essential for any student to obtain the library clearance prior to the application for any certificate from the university examinations branch, it is strongly advised to obtain library clearance at the end of the final examinations. Failure to do so may result the inability to obtain examination certificates on time.
