DR. V. B. ALIAS BHAUSAHEB KOLTE LIBRARY
RASHTRASANT TUKADOJI MAHARAJ NAGPUR UNIVERSITY

About Us

Welcome to Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University Library. This Library 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 Library has gone from strength to strength to live-up to the expectations of its immediate clientele. The University main Library is on North Amabazari Road, Nagpur-10 and there is a Campus Library at the New Campus on Amravati Road. In addition several University Departments, Laxminarayan Institute of Technology, Bar. S.K. Wankhede College of Education, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Law have their own libraries.

Main Library
The University Library did not have its own building until 1957 and was housed in most inadequate premises. It was in 1953, as a special feature of the first Five Year Plan, that the University authorities put up a scheme to the University Grant Commission for the development of the University Library including the construction of new building estimated to cost Rs. 12,50,000/-. 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 readers in general. 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. alies Bhausaheb Kolte Library after the name of the former vice chancellor, Nagpur University, Nagpur

Campus Library
The Campus Library, a branch of the University Library. The building was constructed from U.G.C. fund and inaugurated on 5th December 1978. Prior to this there was a reading room with a sizeable collection attached to the post-graduate teaching departments known as PGTD. On its establishment, the collection of the PGTD has been transferred to the Campus Library. Books for the Campus Library are procured through University Main Library. The Campus Library is building up its collection in tune with the requirements of post-graduate students, the researches and the faculty members. The new name is given to the Building of Campus Library that is P.V. Narasimharao Granthalaya Bhavan on dated 06th July 2010. A Large number of volumes and the Manuscript Section of University Library was transferred to this Campus Library. Besides this there are various departmental Libraries and the University Main Library procures books for both the Campus and Departmental Libraries.
