Quality Assurance

The Library was established in 1962 and opened in 1963 with personnel, information resources and infrastructure. Today the library system, operation, and services, are changing due to the advent of information communication technology. Therefore, this necessitates the library to maintain its quality for the system, operation and services to achieve both specific and general goals of the university library complex and university at large

“The aim of quality assurance in the university library complex is to ensure that there must be a striking balance between what should be or what ought to be and what is on ground in the libraries. It is important that a standard must be used as a yardstick for development.
