Under the support from the Special Assistance Programme of the UGC the Department has been able to purchase a large number of books on most of the recent writings on history. Under the UGC Programme of Universities with Potential for Excellence (UPE) the Department could procure and strengthen the infrastructural facilities in the Department. It has also been able to support the continuance of several foreign and Indian journals on History subscribed by the Library. The Archival Cell in the Department contains the private papers of individuals who have participated in the freedom movement. The Deparatment has an archaeological museum containing antiquities representing stone ages to late Medieval periods. As part of its effort the Department continues to document and update its resources with the help of equipment being purchased from time to time.
