Established in 1973 as part of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College (Evening), the library has always been a busy place for young scholars and teachers alike who need books for references from time to time. With the growth of the institution in the mid-nineties – when the College first turned co-ed, then a day-College, and finally a full-fledged morning Institution – the library has grown into an institution that is at the centre of all learning activities.
Named after the great Sikh scholar Bhai Gurdas, the library is managed by Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee and lives up to the great tradition of Sikh scholarship. It contains all kinds of books – prescribed reading material for various syllabi, recommended readings on different authors, secondary material, and reference books – for consultation by all. With changing times, it has developed even further and has now become a fully computerized resource centre through the installation of “LS Ease Software” for easy accessibility and faster service.
A centrally air-conditioned refuge in the summers, its shelves stock more than 50,000 books, and has an ambience that invites students and academic staff to spend their time either studying for courses or reading for pleasure. It has a comprehensive collection of journals and subscribes to a number of national and international journals in diverse fields. It extends the facility of Book Bank to undergraduate students for an entire semester and lends textbooks to students from economically weaker sections through its Students Aid Fund Programme for the same duration.
