    About Us

    Welcome to Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University Knowledge Resource Centre. (formerly known as Nagpur University Library). Before the implementation of Maharashtra Public University Act 2016, this Knowledge Resource Centre was named as University Library which was started alongwith the establishment of the University in 1923 in order to cater to the academic and research needs of the faculty and students. Since then, the Knowledge Resource Centre has gone from strength to strength to live-up to the expectations of its immediate clientele. Dr.V.B. Alias Bhausaheb Kolte Knowledge Resource Centre is on North Ambazari Road, Ramdaspeth, Nagpur-10 and there is Knowledge Resource Centre, Uniersity Campus at Mahatma Jyotiba Fuley Shaikshanik Parisar on Amravati Road.

    Dr.V.B. Alias Bhausaheb Kolte Knowledge Resource Centre, North Ambazari Road, Ramdaspeth, Nagpur did not have its own building until 1957 and was housed in most inadequate premises.

The foundation stone of the building was laid on the 29th March , 1954. The building was designed to have two floors with a total floor area of 57,480 sq.ft. and to provide a stacking capacity in 4 tiers to hold 3,50,000 volumes approximately, and accommodate 250 students in Reading Room The work commenced and it took almost three years to complete the construction of the building and the university library shifted to its new premises in July 1957. Later in the year 2000 the Library was renamed as Dr. V.B. alias Bhausaheb Kolte Library after the name of the former Vice Chancellor, Nagpur University, Nagpur and now Dr. V.B.Alias Bhausaheb Kolte Knowledge Resource Centre. w.e.f.Feb.2017.
