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. It also caters to the Pharmacy undergraduate students and faculty members. The library has been automated with integrated library management software, ‘EASYLIB’ and provides access to its collection through Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC).  



The University is also a member of the National Cancer Grid (NCG) which has enabled access to the NCG library electronic resources in Oncology, Hematology, Palliative Care and Pathology. The University is also a member of the National Digital library (NDL) which provides access to a large collection of learning resources with more than 6.5 million books in a single portal which can be read online or downloaded.

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