The Heart of the Institution

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, second President of India (1952-1962), said that a “library is a heart of an institution.” This is truer of an academic institution.


The University library not only has as its prime objective “to inculcate the habit of reading among students”, it also equips them with life-long learning skills and develops creativity, innovation, imagination and critical thinking.


The University library offers various services and resources, books and periodicals, to all the members of the Angelicum community to help them become avid readers and life-long learners.
