Facilities

Library Cum Resource Centre

  •  to meet the requirements of the students of text and reference materials
  •  to create data bank that would be useful for the students, researchers, and consultants working in environmental and sustainable development sector
  • to update and upgrade the information in the data bank according to national and international standard
At present, the library has about 1,500 books, journals, and periodicals that cover all the major parts of environmental and sustainable development sector and is accessible to all those who are interested in the fields of environment and sustainable development. The books are available cover the following sectors:
In addition, library is facilitated with the Internet and E- mail services where anyone can surf the web pages of their interest and mail letters. Photo Copier Machine is also available in the library including other necessary equipments to facilitate group discussions about the current environmental issues. The main target of the library is to establish a well equipped resource center particularly in the field of environmental and sustainable development.SchEMS resource center is well equipped with computer facilities, audiovisual equipment such as television, videocassette recorder, audio cassette player, slide projector, etc. In order to assist students, researchers, and consultants in obtaining updated information on the environment, SchEMS resource center is being expanded and strengthened.

 

Environmental Monitoring and Research Services (Laboratory)
Monitoring of environment resources is an integral part of environment management. Analysis of quality of air, water, soil and noise generate information that can be used for environmental management. Therefore, SchEMS has established a well-equipped and well set environmental monitoring laboratory. There are four main sections in the laboratory: microbiological unit, physico-chemical unit, instrumental unit and store. The laboratory service is mainly used for academic purposes and regular environmental monitoring programs of SchEMS. The laboratory is available for students, faculty members, and research associates for their research and academic activities.
Laboratory analysis can be employed for various aspects of environmental monitoring and management, for example, in the field of water supply and sanitation, indoor and ambient air pollution, occupational environment, industrial and municipal wastewater, soil nutrients and metals, pesticide pollution, EIA baseline and monitoring data generation, biodiversity conversation, watershed management, and others.
For the field based research works, researchers can carry water sampler kit and portable instruments out in the field and analyze the quality of air, noise, soil, and water. The instant result helps the researchers to know the exact situation of the area they are working in. The collected samples can be brought to the laboratory and the assigned parameters analyzed.Students employ gravimetric, titrimetric, potentiometric, and spectrophotometric methods. For water, wastewater, and soil, parameters like pH, electrical conductivity, color, turbidity, hardness, chloride, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, suspended solids, dissolved solids, and oil and grease are analyzed.

In addition, library is facilitated with the Internet and E-Mail services where anyone can surf the web pages of their interest and mail letters. Photo copy machine is also available in the library including other necessary equipment to facilitate group discussions about the current environmental issues. The main target of the library is to establish a well equipped resource center particularly in the field of environment and sustainable development.
