About 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, immediate emphasis was given for a good collection development on Text Books and Reference Books. Besides holding an excellent print collection of over 23600+ 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. The library made a significant progress during the year 2011-12 by empanelling 16 vendors for supply of Books & Journals to give a boost to the procurement process. Apart from the procurement on print books, the Central Library achieved phenomenal progress by participating in the UGC-Infonet Digital Library Consortium and at present CUO is getting 8500+ e-Journals (full text as well as bibliographical databases) which is available "24 x 7" on the present campus of CUO @ Landiguda.
