Your gateway to knowledge

A well-stocked library is the cornerstone of any educational institution. NIIT University’s (NU) Library and Information Resource Centre (NU LIRC) is a vital cog in teaching, learning, research and consultancy, offering access to an ocean of resources. It fosters intellectual curiosity, aids research and encourages critical thinking. Our library is fully equipped with books, journals and other digital resources which can be accessed in person, as well as online.
