What Makes It Awesome

Established in 1950, Jayakar Library at Savitribai Phule Pune University has been known for its varied collection of 4,439 rare manuscripts, 4,500 multilingual handwritten books, 4,80,000 printed books, journals, letters of Mahatma Gandhi, BR Ambedkar, NK Kelkar and more. To celebrate the glory of the past six decades, the library is expanding on the digital platform. This will essentially include digitising over five lakhs books and journals. Not just that, the management will also be building a new reading hall with a capacity of 130 students. Currently, the library holds a seating capacity of 650 and is spread across six floors.

Anything Else?

We hear that the management plans to launch the music library soon. This will boast of a massive collection of over 300 CDs, gramophone records and videos that will aim to relax the students.
