Central Library


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).
