J.N. Medical College Library
Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College has a distinction of having one of the best medical libraries of India, popularly known as Faculty of Medicine Library. The Library came into existence in the year 1962 with the establishment of the college for 50 MBBS students. Since then the library has been a major source of reference not only for the students of Faculty of Medicine but also for the students of other faculties at campus. Initially the library had a collection of few thousands books and periodicals with a few staff members but later the library continued to make progress with the increasing number of the students from time to time.In 1985 total intake for MBBS students was increased from 50 to 100 with the approval of the MCI and thus the library became an eminent center of learning and study. In 1996 the number of MBBS students further enhanced from 100 to 150. Various PG courses were initiated along with the establishment of Sir Ziuddin Dental College with intake of 40 students.Now the library is a premier knowledge hub with 400+ sitting capacity for the faculty and the students of the college.
Faculty of Medicine Library acts as the hub for the students and staff faculty of medicine .It serves the medical community by providing an extensive collection of information sources to support the faculty of medicine research,teaching and patients care missions.It also provides personal assistance to the faculty ,staff and students who have difficulty or complex queries or simply need help finding and using the appropriate resources.The library strives to keep it resources and services current and relevant to the ever-changing landscape of health sciences research.Our most difficult challenge at the moment is to make the transition from the library of past to the library of future(e-library) with limited financial resources.To help meet these challenges we have embarked upon a process that culminated in the creation of an updated strategic plan to illustrate how the library plans to align it talents and resources in support of the college's mission.
