Students at the American Language Center can take advantage of books, reference materials, magazines, videos, and information services available in the library. Students may also use the library’s computers to access our extensive collection of online databases or other internet resources from Oxford University and Cambridge University presses.

The American Language Center staff is happy to assist you with locating materials or online searches.  A valid photo ID is required to access the materials and a one month student membership costs Rs.500 (refundable at the end of the course).
