Welcome Message from the Librarian

I welcome our patrons to the Mysore University Library. The Library has served its user community for a long time and has supported the institution to grow and consolidate the excellent track in research and development. The library has contributed to the development especially in procuring and providing the quality information resources collections and the services to the researchers, students and faculty. Mysore University Library is growing to become one of the leading university libraries in the country with a rich collection of books, journals, reports, rare materials and archives, with a total collection of more than 1.2 million items in its system. The Library collection grew since the days of His Highness Maharaja Mummadi Krishnaraje Wadiyar who encouraged building need-based library collection for the Raja’s Free School and also encouraged the reading habit among academic circles way back in the middle of the 19th Century. Mysore University Library is providing information to meet the demands of the users by combining traditional roles with an ongoing commitment to transformation its facilities and services by making use of technology for the changing environment to support the different academic and research activities carried out in the libraries in order to assist the University in realizing its objectives.

Our competent library staff is assisting our user community. They eagerly look forward to meet the information needs of various user communities. I welcome and invite our users to explore and discover the range of quality resources and services, including the facilities the library is extending.
