The SKIMS Medical College library was established in the year 1988 in the star building spread on an area of 1900 sq.ft. with just a total of 1500 books.  SKIMS Medical College was initially known a J.V.C   and later it was taken by government and affiliated with SKIMS Soura . Since then it has seen tremendous growth in terms of its operations, patient count and in student intake capacity as well.

The library has contributed immensely to the growth of medical fraternity of the state. The SKIMS Medical College library has been a great help to the students and staff after being shifted to a new building with an area of 3000 sq.ft  in the year 2013.

Today SKIMS Medical College library is well established and has achieved the status of being one among  the growing libraries of the state, serving the needs of thousands of students across the state. The library has a total of 7000 books and remains open 24x7 for the students. The library has a spacious reading room as well which confers to the daily needs of the students. The management has always been a great support in the development of the library.

To cope up with the continuous developments in the medical field, the library has made easy access to the world-class journals available to the students which makes them competent to face the challenges, not only at state level but also at the international levels. Apart from books, library provides  other facilities as well:

 The management has taken every step to lend a helping hand to the students. During last few years  many book exhibitions were organized in the library in which many leading publications took part. In the year 2012, a leading publication house organized a book fare which  proved to be fruitful for the students and got appreciation from all the faculty members of the college as well. In short this library has proved “a ray of light in the dark”.
