As the Central Library has been established to facilitate greater control and convenience for its readers, the needs for seminar Libraries for individual departments have subsided significantly. However, there are still requirements for some seminar libraries for specific departments due to their unique needs. Currently, three Departments – Law and Human Rights, Civil Engineering, and Business Administration maintain seminar libraries. In total, they have a collection of 2974 books. 


Seminar Library for Business Administration

DBA has its own seminar library containing 2974 books which can accommodate around 50 students. Additionally, daily newspapers are subscribed to the library. A borrowing facility is also available for the students and faculties for their convenient time period.
