National and international repute journals are also available in the seminar to use both faculty members and students of the Department. The Department also has a good source of data and reports, including the RBI bulletin and Planning Commission documents and reports.

All books and journals are properly catalogued with accession numbers from Maulana Azad Library and seminar call numbers from the Department for each document/source of knowledge. The seminar functions with the help of one semi-professional assistant and two seminar secretaries from M.A. (Previous) and M.A. (Final) year students under the guidance of Seminar Library in-charge (a faculty member). Some referenced textbooks are given to each seminar secretary who can issue the books to needy students after receiving his/her student identity card. If any student requires a book that is not available with the seminar secretary but available in the seminar, it is issued by the semi-professional assistant.

The seminar secretary and semi-professional assistant on a register book maintain a proper record about the book's issue and submission. Every student is supposed to take clearance from the seminar for the final viva-voce examination. Similarly, every faculty member has to take clearance from the seminar at the time of their retirement, which makes the seminar's functioning very proper.
