The Library has succeeded in acquiring a wide collection of books/reports on agriculture and rural development, irrigation management, women empowerment, climate change etc. The collections are enormous and diverse-ranging from books, seminar/workshop reports, journals and periodicals. Currently, the Library maintains a collection of eight thousand printed titles. Regular purchase of books and complimentary copies, from different quarters including UN agencies / other regional bodies, constantly expands the holdings of the Library.
