Nirma University has a really great library. It is so great that the University website has a separate page describing it. Unlike many universities, Nirma University’s library has almost every medium through which knowledge can be acquired. Be it VHS, CD-ROMs, DVD, the Internet and all those mediums that I am not aware of, it has everything. Like every other library in the world, it has books. But unlike every other university, it has a book available on every title!! So, basically, it is a Wikipedia inside a room.
