Apart from textbooks and recommended reading material prescribed for each course offered at the institute, the library houses a growing collection of research monographs, reports, multi-volume reference works, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, and so on. In addition, the library also facilitates access to a number of journals through its participation in consortia such as INDEST-AICTE. At present, users can consult more than 4000 books (available on shelves) and hundreds of journals (through electronic subscription)

It took birth in the year 2010, when students of the institution came together to organise the event in September. The theme for the first edition of the festival was ‘The Spirit of the Times’ (the meaning of Zeitgeist) and the fest attracted participation from colleges in far-off places such as Delhi, Roorkee, Mandi and from many places in Punjab and Haryana. The title sponsors for the event were Hero Honda and the star performers were Faridkot, The Band. The fest encouraged spread of Indian culture through its events, with a Spic Macay event being a part of the inaugural ceremony.
