The collection currently consists of about 50,000 volumes, besides all audio-visual material. A great part of the books are held in the various departments of the School of Agriculture.

All material acquired before the 1980s is searchable through card catalogues only.

Most of the books are for loan term for 30 or 60 days (standard loan) depending on the borrower. The other books, with a black dot near the call number tag, are for reference or for  overnight or weekend loan.
