Respected Sir,

Can you please guide from where I can get following information?
Is there any written guideline from CBSE for the collection of library?

Can we add donated or incentive books in library collection while counting on collection as per students.

Dear Siddhartha sir, I have a query..

at the year end, we are trying to make a bound volumes of specific journals in library.  Is it necessary to do accessioning of bound volumes of journals? If it is, then how should we do accession of those which are already had accessioned in Journal register during its arrival individually.  Is it a separate accession register is needed for that bound volumes?
