JBMRC Library

A part of the larger library complex of the CSSSC in the main campus at Baishnabghata Patuli, the library in this house consists of the institution’s entire non-English language collection of books, journals and newspapers. While the predominant body of the approximately 25,000 titles in this library are in Bengali, there is also a smaller body of books and periodicals here in Sanskrit, Urdu, Hindi, Marathi and Assamese. One of the main specialty of the library at JBMRC are the books and journals it holds from the collections of different scholars, some of whose names are given above, which have been donated by the scholars themselves or by their families to this library.

The library offers free reading facilities for all members, against the filling up of a form and a document of identification. The lending facilities of the library are reserved only for the faculty of the CSSSC. Due to the fragile conditions of many of the books and journals, there is restricted scope for photocopying and scanning of material in this library. Photography of library material may be permitted in special cases.
