Rizvi College of Architecture Library has undergone a transformative journey, evolving into a dynamic hub of knowledge and learning. With a rapidly expanding collection of over 6000 books covering architecture, arts, and related subjects, the library has become a valuable resource for both faculty and students. In addition to its impressive physical collection, the library subscribes to various journals and e-resources, further enhancing its academic offerings.

Recognizing the need to adapt to the digital age, the library has successfully transitioned from a traditional setting to a digitized one. This shift includes the digitization and preservation of all literary content in an institutional repository, ensuring easy accessibility for users. The library’s commitment to embracing technology is evident in its policy of providing access from anywhere and anytime, thereby facilitating uninterrupted learning and research through remote access solutions.

A collaborative effort between library professionals and faculty members has played a pivotal role in shaping the vision for the library. This collaboration aims to enhance the collection, maximize the utilization of resources, and ultimately enrich the learning and teaching experience for all stakeholders. By embracing digitization and remote access solutions, the Rizvi College of Architecture Library has positioned itself as a modern, forward-thinking institution dedicated to fostering academic excellence
