LIBRARY

“The library is the backbone of a college or university's academic environment," When a new library is being designed, “future proofing" it is an important ingredient in the criteria for success. Strong floors, good lighting and good ventilation will go a long way in promoting the adaptability and flexibility for posterity. Today, aesthetics are always built more around the personality of the people who will use it. In other words, people take priority over structures, unlike the earlier times when the collection of works in the library was considered paramount. A beautiful building housing a library will rekindle the passions of the students, and entice their elements to experience the library in its new glory as a resourceful learning space in place of an outmoded structure that hardly offers them the atmosphere or environment for advancement in their own special disciplines. Though a conclusion is yet to come on the benefits of space well designed and its effects on the student population, indications are very much leaning to the affirmative. . NRI Library helps students get comfortable with their new academic atmosphere.
