The AMSOM and University library is located at the AMSOM campus. Its collection predominantly comprises literature and research related to management studies. Students, faculty, research scholars and other members of the university are also granted access to the libraries of every Ahmedabad University, opening up a wide body of literature in the arts and sciences, engineering and computer studies, and more.
Its collection of books and periodicals is supplemented by its vast digital repository of e-books, electronic databases and multimedia. Available information resources include search engines, article and index databases, journal subscriptions, and specialised collections on a variety of subjects.
The library procures books and other publications from other libraries and institutions through inter-library loan on request. It also maintains a book bank facility that comprises of textbooks and other research material for the use of students in need. Textbooks from this bank are loaned out every semester to students eligible for the university’s merit-cum-means scholarships.
The library provides regular training and workshops on how to use and enhance learning with its resources. It also facilitates school events such as conferences and workshops, co-ordinating with booksellers and publishers for the most up-to-date, relevant literature for event displays, exhibitions and research.
We have adopted open-source software KOHA for integrated library management, and DSpace for building and updating the institutional repository.
