Dear Professionals,

I am immensely pleased to inform you that our college, Sacred Heart College (Autonomous) has been accredited with A+ (3.31) in NAAC 4th Cycle.

The NAAC peer team visited our library on 28th January between 4.30 pm and 5.00 pm. It was a rich experience of interaction with the team members; answering their queries, exploring our library services and showcasing our best practices. The panel members were very happy and appreciated our library

staff, Library Infrastructure and services.

 

Those who are going for NAAC, Consider the following areas which the team mainly focuses on:

  1. Management of the Library and Information Services (User Feedback, Library Services Audit)
  2. Library services provided to users
  3. Extent of the use of the services and
  4. The library holdings and its update

 

Though the Weightage mark allotted for the Library is 20, it will certainly enhance the CGPA of your institution.
