To meet the challenges in the rapidly diversifying field of media and mass communication, the Government of Rajasthan took the momentous decision of establishing the Haridev Joshi University of Journalism and Mass Communication (HJU). Constituted through the State Legislature's Act No. 11 of 2019, the HJU is mandated to fill the gap in media education through teaching, training and research in journalism, mass communication and allied fields.
The library in the university is planned to be a treasure house of information and knowledge, which plays an important role in the development of students and teachers. HJU will emerge as a center of excellence on the strength of its rich library, which will store rare works, old magazines and latest books and other audio-visual material on media.
This library will not only provide a dense textual material for students, researchers and teachers, but also reference material and research journals.
