Chandigarh, March 20

The library of the department of physics at Panjab University has a separate reading section which the scholars can use for their studies in case the library is jampacked. 

The department has not made any hard and fast rules for this special section, especially for scholars but during the exams, if the students do not get a seat, it is open for the students also. 

With time, the department has extended the seating arrangements and storage of books and journals in the library. During a visit, it was found that library has four computers which even the students can access for online research of books. 

The collection of the books with the department is over 18,000. The oldest rare book which the department has is of 1890. These rare books are in demand by the old professors of the department who are regular visitors. 

The library has a capacity to seat 45 students which is not only used by the department’s students and scholars but also by other departments like chemistry, the University Institute of Engineering and Technology and scholars from other universities of the region. The library is fully air-conditioned. 

Assistant at the department’s library Renu said the students kept demanding new books as per their academic requirement. The authorities tried to fulfill the demands at their earliest so that the students do not have to face any difficulty in their research or academic pursuits.
