Message from the Librarian

The concept of Library has experienced tremendous change over the years with the fast evolution of information technology. In the present era of digital communication and information explosion, libraries ought to keep pace with the modern times ensuring easy access to the ICT integrated information by the faculty, researchers and students of the University.

It is a matter of pleasure & satisfaction that our library is transforming with the changing scenario to meet the knowledge needs to students and faculty. It has come out as an efficient centre for efficient and effective delivery of appropriate information to the end users. I request all to make full use of this temple of knowledge.


Central Library, CSKHPKV, Palampur was initiated with the establishment of the third campus of the Punjab Agricultural University as College of Agriculture, Palampur Hill campus. Library was shifted to new building in 08-01-1987. Presently library at Palampur caters to the needs of the students, teachers, researchers, extension personnel and the staff of the four constituent colleges of the university as well as the faculty stationed at Regional Research Stations, Sub-Stations and Krishi Vigyan Kendras of the University.
