The Library of Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering is named officially as “Manubhai P. Sanghvi Knowledge Centre”. This fully air-conditioned and well-furnished Library is situated on the first floor of the college building. The total library area is of more than 7500 sq. ft. It is facilitated with reprography & also a 24 hours Wi-Fi network connection. Library is open for more than 10 hrs. (8.15 am. to 6.30 pm.) on all working days and 12 hours during exams.

The fully computerized Library is a treasure house of knowledge comprising an ever growing collection of about 80,638 Engineering books (e-books & printed books) and more than 93,000 e-books of all other disciplines with 4 databases covering all aspects of Mechanical, Production, Chemical, Electronics, Electronics and Telecommunications, Information Technology, Computer & Biomedical Engineering. The periodical section is a vital source for academic research and up-to-date information in the field of Engineering. Library holds 91 printed journals (national & international). Besides this, the library has collection of bound volumes of journals, audio visual material, newspapers, Black books of dissertations, project CDs, etc.

The web based access of the e-journals to all students and faculty is an important facility provided by the library. Library users can access a variety of full text journals covering variety of titles published by worldwide journals publishers. Library subscribes seven e-journals every year for the students and faculties. The library arranges regular awareness programs on use of electronic resources. The entire Library collections of all SVKM & other institutions of SVKM including books, journals, etc. can be searched through the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC). Users can access the OPAC to find out the real-time availability of all library materials from their own computer terminals as well as from home.

Library has a well-equipped Seminar Hall with Webinar and conferencing facility. The library has transformed, from a traditional library with manual transactions to an Electronic library and now is moving into being a Digital Library. As a first step, library has scanned all the question papers and the access has been given to the students through Blackboard.

Newly created Digital Library with DSPACE open source software is an important resource for all the students and faculty members of the college as it is a service model for open access and digital archiving for perennial access. Moreover, it provides a platform to frame an Institutional Repository and the collections can be searched and retrieved through the Web. Library has an institutional membership of ASM International, USA, where the user community can use the resources available with a host of other institutions. Also, the Library has a membership of National Digital Library (NDL). More than 10 million documents are available in NDL including e-books, journal articles, video lectures etc.

Vision :

The Manubhai P. Sanghvi Knowledge Centre of D.J. Sanghvi College of Engineering Seeks to be not just a repository and resource centre catering to the needs of the Engineering students and faculty but to become a treasure trove of knowledge. It seeks to take it users beyond the aim of mere academic achievements and into a realm of practical knowledge. It also aims to make available learning resources to inculcate in its users a sense of moral and social responsibility besides technical knowledge.


Mission :

The mission of our college library is to acquire, organize, preserve, and disseminate knowledge in order to support the research needs of students and faculty members. The library builds and maintains extensive, carefully-selected, and well-organized collections that are essential for the success of the curriculum. It provides wide and effective access to networked scholarly resources and works in cooperation with faculty to develop student’s competence in using the Library and other information sources to their advantage.
