Library Collections

Recognizing the role of library and information services in meeting the requirements of the Institute’s academic, research, training and consultancy programmers, the LIBRARY was set-up as one of the key Divisions of the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow. A modest beginning was made in May, 1985 (the first academic session began in July 1985) when the library started functioning from a small room in the rented premises of the Giri Institute of Development Studies. Over a period of fifteen years, the library has grown quite impressively, in that it now stocks a core collection of over 50,000 select documents (in various forms) and subscribes to 480 learned periodicals. Equipped with latest designed furniture and fittings, the library has all modern equipment to support its diverse range of activities. State-of-the-art Information Technology (IT) products are in place to modernizes its operations and services. It meets the complex information requirements of a variety of its users (both from within the Institute and outside) satisfactorily. All this has been made possible through the team work exhibited by all the members of the team working in the Library.
