Administrative Training Institute is a premier training organization of the Government of Karnataka for the Government Functionaries.  The Library of this Organization has a rich collection of more than 61358 records comprising printed documents i.e. books, reports, manuals, gazettes, journals, periodicals, magazines, course material and reference material in the areas of Social Science, Public Administration, Management, Rural Development, Urban Development, Disaster Management, Women Studies, Computer, Law and allied subjects.  The Library is being updated with new additions by conducting ‘Book Exhibitions’ in the Institute, and suggestions by the faculty and officers of the department.  The books in this Library are arranged as per Dewey decimal classification.  At present we are using e-Granthalaya 4.0 version Library Software which is developed by the NIC.  We are in process of upgrading our library and it will become fully automated and that would be in a position to make available all the bibliographical data available through Online Public Access Catalogue (OPC) and networked (LAN) resource sharing. Our competent library staff is assisting our user community. They eagerly look forward to meet the information needs of various user communities. I welcome and invite our users to explore and discover the range of quality resources and services, including the facilities the library is extending.
