I welcome our patrons to the Mysore University Library. The Library has served its user community for a long time and has supported the institution to grow and consolidate the excellent track in research and development.

Mysore University Library is growing to become one of the leading university libraries in the country with a rich collection of books, journals, reports, rare materials and archives, with a total collection of more than 1.2 million items in its system. The library collection grew since the days of His Highness Maharaja Shri Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar who encouraged building need-based library collection for the Raja’s Free School and also encouraged the reading habit among academic circles way back in the middle of the 19th Century.

Greetings from the Librarian
