From The Chief Librarian


Dr Dhaval Bhatt

Personally I believe that the essence of knowledge lies behind the pages of a book, and libraries are the centers of knowledge which transform the mind and renew the hearts. Parul University libraries have a mission of great importance in the academic lives of faculties and students, providing them with reference and information sources in the various fields of knowledge and while at the same time providing the most dynamic learning environment. The university constantly expands its library’s collection of books, academic journals as well as electronic information sources in order to widen its services. The library ensures that its collections remain forward – looking, diverse in breadth and form, open to the contemporary standards of the world with the utmost quality. Through promotion, the library makes people aware of the resources available to them, and through innovation, it makes access to these resources easier. The Library preserves information across all formats and ensures the effective storage and delivery of these resources. The Library continues to embrace change and align itself to thrive on diversity, to support professional growth and opportunity and to reward flexibility and innovation. I welcome you to the Central Library.

Learning Beyond the Library
