Library & Information Centre




History of the Library:
The Jyoti Nivas College Library is the nerve centre of the college that provides the students, teachers and the research scholars with the tools for the acquisition and advancement of knowledge.

The JNC Library was established in the year 1966 in Frazer Town, and shifted based later when the college shifted to Koramangala in1976. The Library was first housed in a small room, and then shifted to a large hall where it gradually developed into a big library, with a collection of around 30,000 books and 75 Periodicals and Journals. As the college began to grow and develop there was a shortage of space to store library materials.It was also growing difficult to accommodate students and staff. A strong need was felt for a bigger building to house the library. Consequently in the year 2000, the present building, which comprises of a basement and four floors, was constructed. Jyoti Nivas College has made vast improvements in the field of library and information services. The overall purpose of the library and information centre is to support the curriculum offered at the Jyoti Nivas College. The function of the library is to support and enrich classroom instruction through a collection of carefully selected material based on courses and programs offered by the college.
