Study in the Lap of Nature

The majestic Himalayas are considered as the highest mountain ranges in the world. The name Himalaya comes from the Sanskrit word Hima-laya meaning ‘Abode of snow’, however, over time it has developed into the plural, ‘Himalayas’ because of the presence of multiple mountain ranges. These majestic snow capped mountain peaks are a symbol of beauty and tranquility.

The Himalayas though have been inaccessible but many people have managed to cross it and left traces of their cultures. Magnificent Himalayas embracing the high clouds are great wonders of nature. The mystic beauty of the Indian Himalayas has attracted people from across the globe to experience and explore this beauty of nature. The Himalayas stretch across the north-eastern portion of India and pass through the nations of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan and Nepal.

The Himalayan range comprises of three ranges often referred to as the Greater Himalayas, the Lesser Himalayas, and the Outer Himalayas. It is a source of the three major rivers of the world, namely the Indus, Ganges, Brahmaputra and river Yangtze.

It has also been cited in scriptures that Himalayas have been home to many Rishis and Saints since early time of the civilization. It has been a place of tourist attraction in the modern world. Therefore, Himalayas have been the subject of extensive research and hold reverence for people of different cultures.

University Library 


The primary function of the university library is to bring together information or knowledge on the one hand and human beings on the other. Libraries have been traditionally organised by functional department, cataloguing, acquisitions, periodicals, and so on. Subject division is now more popular, in principle if not in practice. Both types of division make questionable assumptions and if the division is at all rigid, it is highly dangerous. It is not the duty of a cataloguer merely to catalogue but to contribute by everything he does to the purpose of his library; and a subject division can become subject isolation or subject rivalry. If there is one thing certain, it is that libraries must be flexible.

The use of computers has also helped significantly in the functioning of libraries as they offer an extremely flexible way of sorting factual data, indexes, and catalogue entries. They give hopes of reconciling the needs of users and administrators, and of lightening necessary administrative operations such as circulation and acquisition systems.
