           Atomization of Library functioning process with RFID tag   system, compliance with KOHA software etc.,  i.e.,

    1. It is proposed to tag each book with RFID chip
    2. Issue RFID cards to the staff and students for entry and exit
    3. Self lending and return of the books by using RFID terminals and drop box
    4. Turn style Entry and Exit gates for security of books
  • Upgrading Digital Library to 70 systems and subscribing more number of E-Journals
  • Increasing the student seating capacity to 350
