Central Library

Learning Resources

The Yenepoya Library was established with the starting of  Yenepoya Dental College in 1992.  It shifted to the Deralakatte campus in the year 2000 with the starting of the Yenepoya Medical College.  Subsequently, the Physiotherapy, nursing and Pharmacy sections were also added.  It was later upgraded to University Library after the Yenepoya University was formed.

Now it caters to the Medical, Dental, Nursing and Physiotherapy undergraduate and postgraduate students, faculty and research scholars. The library has been automated with integrated library management software, which also provides access to its collection through Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). 


The Central Library is a member of the E-journals consortium (HELINET) of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS).  Library users can access over 482 e-journals.  It also subscribes three (3) databases from the EBSCO International Inc., which is available on the University-wide network.

The Central library has taken Institutional membership of the Mangalore University Library to facilitate students, faculty & research scholars to use the print & e-resources available at Mangalore University Library. With this membership one can access 5000+  e-journals from UGC-INFONET

Access to e-journals, e-books, and online databases and all library resources is given through the YENGAGE e-learning portal.
