 Periodicals

Periodicals include Journals, Magazines. Technical Journals are the primary source of information. Textbooks are secondary source of information. Handbooks and Encyclopedias are tertiary source of information. Information present in Journals is considered as the latest and nascent. Hence there is a greater importance for periodical section in a technical or any professional institute. Journals are outsourced from various sources and from various geographical regions. There are national periodicals and international periodicals in this section.


          With the advent of Internet, e-journals gained lot of significance. There are number of on-line bibliographic databases available in science and technology. The costs of the journals are increasing day by day. It is very difficult to procure all the journals by individual institutes. To curb this, Consortium approach came into existence.


          We are procuring journals as per the AICTE norms for our Library. We have subscribed e-journals through DELNET.
