The University Library came into existence with the establishment of the Kuvempu University on June 29, 1987. Till then it was functioning as a Post-Graduate Centre Library under the control of University of Mysore and the library resources were housed in a temporary building at B.R.Project. In the year 1988, the library was shifted to the academic building on Jnana Sahyadri campus.
Finally University library was shifted to its own newly constructed modular independent building in the year 2003. In the midst of its excellent setup of academic activities, the library acts as a nerve centre catering to the academic and research needs of the students, the researchers and the faculty members of post-graduate departments, covering Science, Social Science, and Humanities, engaged in higher pursuit of knowledge. Kuvempu University Library has been shaped as a centre of excellence, for academic and research pursuits by keeping itself open to the changes brought in by information and communication technologies.read more
