As said by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, 2nd president of India – “Library is the heart of an institution” made the presence of a library inevitable in all institutions and when it comes to an academic institution library plays a vital role as an indispensable tool of the learning process; starting from the toddler-school life to the higher education-colleges till the research and scholar phase and beyond.

Five Laws of Library Science

Father of Library Science in India Dr. S.R. Ranganathan gave the Five Laws of Library Science a theory that he proposed in 1931 detailing the principles of operation of the library system. Many librarians around the world accept the law as the foundation of their philosophy.

  1. First Law: Books are for use. 
  2. Second Law: Every reader his or her book.
  3. Third Law: Every book has its reader.
  4. Fourth Law: Save the time of the reader.
  5. Fifth Law: A library is a growing organism.

The library considered the heart of the Indore Institute of Law (IIL), serves as a resource center and a perfect hub for efficient dissemination of knowledge.
