Bibliotheca Basics

The Library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life.

Books are what give an institution its soul. A good library acts not only as the treasured wisdom of the world, but is also a medicine cabinet for the soul and a training ground for life. The Christ Junior College library is certainly a place where students lower their voices, only to raise their minds. Located on the second floor of the college, with an enviable collection of 28,765 books, newspapers, magazines and academic journals, the library is a haven for avid readers and researchers. It also has educational CDs/DVDs and Internet and photocopying facility that could be availed by faculty members as well as students. The Internet facility provides free and unlimited access to online academic resources.
