About the Library

            Contemporarily and relevance are the watchwords at the BIPARD and this philosophy is reflected in its well-equipped, modern and computerized library. Since its inception, the library has grown to become a vital part of the academy. It offers a wide range of books and periodicals on different yet related subjects. Trained, professionally qualified and service oriented staff is always eager to help you reach the document you want.

 

Location

            The library is situated in a very strategic place, close to all the class rooms. It is in the main building, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens. The indoor plants within the library give you a feeling of closeness to nature, just as the books bring you close to the great minds of all ages.

 

Study Room

            An air-conditioned study room, which can quite easily accommodate about 35-40 persons, creates an apt environment for concentrated and in-depth reading and study in the library. Besides this, there is a general reading and study hall where one can comfortably browse through newspapers and magazines. This atrium accommodates more than 30 persons at a time, while the large windows bathe the hall in natural light.
