Text Book

The Section containing Text Books, Book Bank and Ph. D. Theses is located at Ground Floor of the Central Library. Apart from printed versions of the documents, this section also makes available e-text books which are unique in their nature and widely used with perpetual access. The e-text books are accessible to the campus users round the clock on LAN from http://library.iitd.ac.in/Browse-E-TextBooks. The Text Book & Book Bank section is the back bone of the Central Library as it caters to the course needs of the students and therefore the documents from this section are in high demand throughout the year. A portion inside the section is available for serious reading which is perhaps the most comfortable reading area in the whole library.
