Acquisition functions include selection of documents as well as suppliers, verification, placing purchase orders, receiving, accessioning, and providing information to indenters regarding status of ordered documents, and processing bills for payment.

Technical Processing

Technical Processing i.e., Classification and Cataloguing makes a bridge between Acquisition of documents and their Circulation. It also plays a vital role in the functioning of library services smoothly and effectively

Classification is a process for assigning a Call Number to a document, which fixes its position in the rack among the titles on the same subject. Call Number consists of three parts, Class Number, Book number and Collection Number.

CBIT follows AACR-II for Cataloguing of Books/ AACR-II provides complete guidelines for the cataloguing of the library materials. The library Online Public Access Catalogue is updated in the LMS system






The Main function of Circulation Section is lending library books to the users of the library.

Library Circulation includes checking out library materials to library users, checking in materials returned, checking the materials for damage at the time of return, if found damaged then giving that to responsible staff for repair and when repair is not possible then replacement,  receiving payment of fines for damaged and overdue materials, maintaining order in the stacks by re-shelving the library materials by call number given by classification system, 

The image of library depends upon the functions of Circulation Section because a majority of the users in academic libraries interact with the staff of this Circulation Section. For library transactions (i.e., for issue and return of documents), the  Library Circulation Counter is open between 9 AM and 4.15 PM on all working days.
