Readers often have to consult books and materials, such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, Yearbooks, and the like for data or information. Normally, a reader would not need to remove such books from the Reading Room. Consequently, these books are never issued to anyone, but are used in the Library premises and for Photocopy.
Reserve Book Section
Reserve Book Section users are not allowed to borrow any book from the Reserve Books Section, where users can find text and confined books. No user should remove any book from reserve section to any other section. The Reserve bookshelf is controlled by the Library Personnel on duty under the overall control of the Librarian and the Assistant Librarians.
