In any institution of higher learning, the library as the storehouse of knowledge needs to play a pivotal role. A modern library goes far beyond providing the readers with a large stock of books and periodicals, and a quiet, serene and comfortable place to study in. It is supposed to provide the readers information on the entire wealth of knowledge available on any selected topic on a mere click of a button. Apart from the physical books stocked within the library walls, it needs to provide the readers with access to shared E-resources from across the world. The SLC Library with its dynamic librarian and “always ready to help” staff has been continuously striving to keep pace with the changing times to provide the students with the very best of facilities.

The well-stocked Library has a rich collection of nearly 70,000 books on Science, Economics, Commerce, English Literature, Hindi, Political Science, History, Journalism, Environmental Science and Biology as well as periodicals and journals on these subjects.

The fully automated library with a dedicated server and computers with internet connections accessible to faculty and students alike, the Library is now part of Delhi University Library Network, and has access to all its E-resources. Apart from a decent reading space for the students and faculty to study in, the students can also borrow text as well as reference books from the Library. It is intended to make the Library fully air-conditioned soon, as part of the on-going renovation work in the College
