Central Library

About the Library

The University Library system was initiated in the year 1961 after the establishment of the University of Kalyani in the year 1960. The present library building was inaugurated in the year 1979. At present, the total area of the Central Library is 2805sq.m with its eco-friendly green campus. Central Library is having a healthy collection of physical as well as electronic resources to satisfy the need of its user community. Physical resources of the library are managed through the SOUL 2.0, integrated library management software. Along with the book database (more than 1.5 Lac), back volume journal database, theses database, special collections etc. have been maintained by the library, which all are OPAC enabled.  Subscription-based e-journals and e-books, bibliographic databases with perpetual access have been subscribed by Central Library with the University’s financial support, along with the e-Sodhsindhu Consortium electronic resources. Renowned foreign and Indian print journals have also been subscribed by the library to support and maintain the academic excellence of the University. Library also played an important role to maintain the academic integrity of the University by analyzing the research content through the PDS software provided by the UGC, INFLIBNET Centre i.e. Ouriginal software. Moreover, Institutional Repository has also been created with the DSpace software which covers many important documents as well as the old University question papers (PG and UG level), Ph.D. theses of our University and many more. Most of the theses of our University are also accessible from the National Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Platform i.e. http://shodhganga.inflibnet.ac.in/. Presently the entire Central Library building is under renovation including the installation of an elevator keeping intact all the library services extended to its users.

Digitization and other Important Activities

With the aim to digitize the doctoral theses (Ph.D. theses on different subjects), of the University of Kalyani, MOU was signed between UGC-INFLIBNET Centre, Gandhinagar and University of Kalyani, Nadia on 24th March, 2015 under Sodhganga and Sodhgangotri Project. Financial assistance of an amount of Rs. 21,50,000 (Twenty one Lakh Fifty Thousand) has been granted by the UGC on 15th March 2017 out of which Rs.11,50,000 for Digitization of Theses and Rs.10,00,000 for setting up Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) Laboratory.

To ensure the continuous cycle of digitization process in future, fully air-conditioned well designed and well equipped EDT lab has been created, with the assistance from the University and financial support from UGC. Institutional Repository has also been created with the DSpace software which covers presently the old question papers (PG level), PhD theses of our University. 

Presently more that 2581 numbers of PhD theses of University of Kalyani have already been uploaded on Sodhganga and efforts are being continued to complete the digitization of balance theses within a short period. The digitized data is available through link http://shodhganga.inflibnet.ac.in/. (Click here to view the present status of the University)

Research Outcomes of the University

Research work is considered as the backbone of the teaching and learning process of our University. Research work like M.Phil and PhD degree are performed in all the departments of the university as a continuous process under the supervision of respective faculty members.

The University strongly encourages research work after monitoring by the statutory committee under the chairmanship of the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor. A large number of research publications of our university have earned reputation nationally as well as internationally. The research publications during the last four years include more than three thousand research outcomes. Recently a number of MoU are signed which indicates that inter-University/ institute research collaborations are being encouraged. Several conferences/ workshops are organized and collaborative programs go on regular basis to improve the academic excellence. It is needless to mention that any kinds of research contents are submitted/ communicated after similarity checking through the Plagiarism Detection Software in order to maintain the academic integrity.
