Central Library

The Central Library plays a vital role in furthering the academic and research mission of Central University of Orissa and facilitates creation and dissemination of knowledge. The range and quality of services offered by the library are comparable to any modern libraries in India of International standard.

Soon after the formal appearance of the Central Library in the year 2009, the immediate emphasis was given for a good collection development on Text Books and Reference Books. Besides holding an excellent print collection of over 29272 volumes of books, it also provides access to popular magazines, selected journals, theses, reports, e-books, e-journals, and online databases in Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

With the guidance of present dynamic Hon'ble Vice Chancellor, Prof. Sachidananda Mohanty, the library is marching towards its goal by taking some good initiatives like providing fully air-condition facility in the library, e-resource zone as well as Computer Centre, separate server for library operation, good collection of documents, Talking library (for visually impaired students), Remote access facility to our e-resources, and providing sufficient computers in the library for accessing OPAC and e-resources, develop a property counter with security and CCTV cameras for proper surveillance of the library. The Central Library achieved phenomenal progress by participating in the UGC-Infonet Digital Library Consortium (presently E-ShodhSindhu) and at present CUO is getting 8500+ e-Journals (full text as well as bibliographical databases) which is available "24 x 7" on the both the campuses of CUO which is accessible to our users in-house as well as remotely.
