It has a separate audio-visual room, computer lab, group study area and private study area.

It started as the Central Library in 1953 and later shifted to an independent building at Dr T.M.A Pai Research Centre in 1983. In view of the future academic requirements, the university created SEARCH, the Health Sciences Library with state-of-the-art facilities at manipal.edu building.
