About Us


The House of Wisdom (ArabicBayt al-Ḥikmah) refers either to a major Abbasid public academy and intellectual center in Baghdad or to a large private library belonging to the Abbasid Caliphs during the Islamic Golden Age.


The mission of the Central Library is to Collect and compile new knowledge through acquisition, organization and dissemination of knowledge resources and providing value added services to the community of the university as well as to the society.


Suresh Gyan Vihar University believes that library is the life of any academic institution and it is the main source of transformation and transmission of information to the society.
