countries. The library facility of PUST is increasing and digitalizing day by
day with lot of new activities.
Now there is only one type of library system in PUST called central library. Since PUST has not it`s own campus yet, it`s central library is also temporarily preceded. Initially The Central Library & Information Center of Pabna University of Science and Technology started functioning at Rajapur Teacher`s training College (TTC) in 2009 that is a part of temporary campus of Pabna University of Science and Technology.
The permanent campus of PUST is under construction that is situated in front of TTC campus near Pabna town. Then PUST Library is shifted to its present location at Dokkhin Raghabpur, Captain M. Munsur Ali road (Near Talpukur), Pabna. It is a two storied historical building of Pabna related to our liberation war.
The Central Library & Information Center of Pabna Science & Technology University is basically designed to serve the actual need of its students, faculty, officers and researchers. It carries out a variety of activities to support the academic and research endeavor and to promote a better understanding of the policies, curriculum and culture of the University.
As a library of a new university it has a large collection of books. Now the total number of books is approximately 7,376 and many others are under official works and management. There are not only academic books but also many non-academic books such as liberation war and country`s history related books. All books are arranged and decorated in a well manner and perfect care. The library also provides many Bengali and English newspapers for the students and staffs.
The assistant librarian Md. Hafizur Rahman Mollah is the main supervisor of PUST library. He manages and supervises all official activities of library very carefully. There are 7 staffs in the library who manages different type of work.
Students get many facilities from the library though it is new. They can take maximum three books for a week showing their library card. There are all departmental and non-departmental books for students’ better study and which are also useful for their research and thesis works. They can also read books and newspapers in the library building. They always get good cooperation and well behavior from the library staffs.
Since PUST is a new varsity so it has some problem certainly and for this the library has also some internal and external problems. The main
problem is that it has not it`s own building. So it cannot provide a better
reading room for the students. Students have to read books outside the library. There are some tables and chairs for reading. There are also some other problems in the library such as it has no sufficient room for keeping books, it creates problem for book searching.
Some more staffs are also needed for the library management system. PUST library is now under construction for digitalization and some other smart decoration. It will provide some reading rooms, some more benches, chairs, tables and other necessary things as soon as possible for the students. Students have lot of expectations from the library and the varsity administration is always skilful to fulfill their hopes and expectations. For these reason the construction work of PUST campus with its library building
