College Library

N.E.S. Science College Library, Nanded
( For Website from April 2015 onwards )

A little library, growing larger every year, is an honorable part of a man’s history.
It is man’s duty to have books.
A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessaries of life.
BY -Henry Ward Beecher.
We are very much happy to announce here, SCN library is really works like pulsing heart of the academic activities. It helps in promotion of higher education and research and gives proactive support in teaching and learning.  The college has central library facility since the establishment of the college in 1950. Later on in the year 1963 the Science faculty was bifurcated and Arts and Commerce faculties shifted in the new building, Peoples College Nanded and thus the libraries of Science College and Peoples College started functioning separately. Over the span of 65 years Science college library has enriched with good collection of Books, Back Volumes, Periodicals and now recently with online and offline databases.  Books collection includes Text, References, and Subject books mostly in basic sciences such as Physics, Chemistry, Mathematical, Biology, Botany, Zoology and Geology. Library also possesses books of Applied Sciences, Languages, Competitive examinations, Biographies, and books of general nature for overall development of students.    Further in the year --------- Senior College and Junior college libraries have been housed in separate building.  Senior college library is the main library of the college located in old building and Reading Room with Junior college library has been functioning in separate building.
