The books are the most important and essential requirement in the scientific centers and the institutions for education, research and scientific generation. Undoubtedly, scientific progress and development in human civilization are caused by registration of new scientific information and findings and then transmitting them to the researchers and the next generations through preparation of different resources, so the history of science has been divided into two periods by the scientists: before and after printing.

The activity of this library began in 1343 with twenty two dictionaries in vicinity of the engineering classrooms after college of Engineering was established. After developing the building, the library had the study and journal halls with some librarians in second floor of the engineering college.
