Donation of Journals Back Volumes

The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc) is an institution of nation importance for fundamental research in the areas of Theoretical Physics, Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science and Computational Biology. It is an autonomous institution under Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India.

IMSc library is the information backbone of the institute to support academic and research activities.  National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM) has recognised this library as their regional library to promote mathematics education and research.  The library is kept open during all saturdays exclusively for academic and research community other than our campus users. About 5000+ walk-in users from various academic and research institutions  across the country in a year make use of our library. 

The library has over a period of time acquired various reading materials for research  both in print and online. This includes research journals, books, databases, thesis and dissertations etc.

In an effort to extend support for government institutions that are in need of information resources for their academic and research activitiies, the IMSc authorities have decided to donate the rich collection of about 35000 printed bound volumes  acquired over the last 50 years for which we have online access available.  This will also help in optimum utilisation of available library space. The list of bound volumes available for donation is given below:

1. Mathematics

2. Physics

3. Computer Science

4. Computational Biology

You may please go through this list and let us know by email ( the volumes that you need for your institution. We will duly check our online access to these Bound Volumes you selected before sending the same to you.
