Brief History

The IDSK Library which is an ideal place for knowledge enhancement of academicians as well as research professionals has taken its offshoot in the morning days of the 21st century. It began functioning from December 2002 at 5th floor of Alipore Campus of Calcutta University. It has moved to its present own campus at Salt Lake in 2010. The Library which started its journey with only hundreds of books has now reached its enriched collection of over twenty thousand books. The Library has introduced its Online Catalogue accessible from all parts of the globe since 2017. In 2018 the Library has launched its own separate website which has become the open platform for scholars to gather knowledge and access resources from their home. This platform opens a gate to the inquisitive mind to satisfy his or her reference queries. The latest addition to the Library’s arsenal is its new Course Guide platform accessible via username and password for the scholars of the Institution. This facility has been introduced in 2020 to bolster the study from home facility.
