Knowledge is the wheel which keeps the vehicle of education in a revolving flow of motion. Our libraries are the centers of knowledge and our books are the vessels which provide students with the most enriching learning experience. They are equipped with the most modern facilities and amenities, designed to make every reading session highly fulfilling and completely engaging.

We Are Here For You

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


E-Library

As a way of keeping in touch with the modern trends in technology, our state of the art libraries, are wired with the latest library network systems. We go on to provide a pool of online and digital resources, which provide our students with the highest form of convenience and a guaranteed availability of our library services. SOUL 2.0 a library based software follows a barcode software in the issuance of the library resources and the OPAC – “ON LINE PUBLIC ACCESS CATALOGUE” always gives you an expedient experience in finding the location of books and other resources.
