Online Services

A hybrid choice of service: traditional with a twist of modern touch.
UP EnggLib couples its rich collection with excellent, professional services, providing innovative solutions for learners and their mentors by staying keen on new ways to make EnggLib service even better. Although it considers itself as an IT Library, traditional library services still play key role in the daily activities of EnggLib. However, most of these services were recreated and repackaged through the implementation of IT-related applications so as to cope up with the growing collection and expanding needs of the immediate stakeholders.
