Know Us Better


The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window to the soul and a door onto the world.


There are multiple fully automated libraries at the UETR campus, which together have an expansive collection of about 40000 titles. 36,297 books, 84 magazines and print journals, 6500 peer-reviewed e-journals and over 1 lakh e-books can all be accessed via a computerized bar-coding system, all under careful CCTV surveillance.

Libraries are a power house of knowledge – there are separate, curated libraries in each department and hostel that can be referred to by the students.

As one of the leading libraries of Uttarakhand, the Central Library at UETR empowers students with full access to project reports, syllabi, research papers, faculty publications, and many rare books, books for competitive exams like GATE, GRE and TOEFL, along with previous years’ question papers from other universities in both digital and bound form. The library is also a member of Springer, DELNET & J-Gate, which gives our students access to an unlimited collection of e-journals. Xeroxing and printing facilities are available on a nominal charge.


General Book Section

Our entire collection is sectioned subject-wise, and includes books on all emerging technologies. Students and faculty can get these books issued for a period of 15 days, 4 books at a time.

Reference Section

This section contains dictionaries, encyclopaedias, reference books, rare books, project reports and faculties’ research papers. Each title has minimum of 4 books that students can refer to within the library.

Digital Library Section

Rather than being restricted to the physical copies in our library, our students also have access to extensive e-resources, including online journals and over a million eBooks.


Periodical Section

Our library is subscribed to 131 newspapers, print journals and magazines that span numerous diverse disciplines. 11 of these titles have multiple copies.

NPTEL Section

1481 video lectures given by IITians can be viewed by our students for increased insight into the world of technology and science, along with access to multimedia PCs.
