“IMEAS Library: Touching Lives through its Services, Collections and Facilities”
One of the notable quotes from Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, 2nd president of India – “Library is the heart of every institution” made the impression that library plays a vital role as an indispensable tool of learning process. Every Library houses both print and non-print materials are very helpful and useful to all members of the institution. The Institute of Middle East and Asian Studies (IMEAS) Library has an inevitable contribution to the IMEAS community to become keen readers, providing them with life-long learning skills and improving students’ academic performances. IMEAS Library offers useful collection of books, theses and serials, as well as its services and facilities for effective teaching-learning process and research that suits to their information needs.

The utilization of the IMEAS Library has a significant increase each year which indicates that more users have known the importance of library to their study.
