The Library of SRRCET strives for a high quality of services which emphasize the actual delivery of information rather than the actual delivery of documents to meet the generic as well as specific needs of the users. Generous borrowing arrangements and 12 – hour opening mean that it is a central part of college life and a popular place to work at any time of the day or night. The Library aims to provide books which under graduates need for their weekly assignments, projects sometimes in multiple copies for basic texts; student's requests for new material are very much welcomed.
