The ICSK Library works under two platforms- ICSK digital library and ICSK
e-books. ICSK digital library is fully automated. All the four branches of ICSK are inter-linked. Its objective is to give access to the students to enhance the reading habits. After browsing, they will be able to locate, identify, trace and borrow the books from the library. The students can reserve the books and will be intimated by the librarian based on the availability. As soon as the books will be returned, a message will be popped up on the library desk.
The ICSK digital library has integrated Library software and maintains a computerized catalogue of its entire collection. It also provides easy access to e-books. There are more than ten thousand e-books at the ICSK book-store. Students can visit the library, browse, identify and download the books. If the students wish, they can e-mail the books to themselves. Students can enjoy the e-books from home as well.
The Digital Library is linked with the school web portal and ICSK mobile app. The parents can procure the online catalogue through cloud app. Parents can not only recommend the books to their children but also keep a record of the transaction of books. Children can explore the plethora of knowledge and reservoir of information. It is an effort by the ICSK fraternity to harness the best & the latest resources.
