All you have to do is to submit a written application specifying your name, roll number and the books you need at the counter. The serial number assigned implies your status in the waiting list. You are free to avail the books when your turn comes.
The collection of books is categorized in five sections:
* Book bank cum text book section
* General section
* Reference section
* Periodical section
* Audio Visual cum Digital Library section
