Department of J R D Tata Memorial Library


The Library of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) Bangalore, was established in 1911 and it is one of the first three departments started in the Institute. It is regarded as one of the best scientific and technical libraries in India. Apart from the Main Library it has departmental libraries also. The Library moved in to the present premises in January 1965, built out of grants provided by University Grants Commission (UGC), in commemoration of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Institute in 1959. In 1995 the library was renamed as "JRD Tata Memorial Library". The National Board for Higher Mathematics(NBHM) has recognized this library as Regional Center for Mathematics for the south region and continued to award a special grant towards subscription of Journals in Mathematics. It is no exaggeration to state that the IISc library is the largest and finest of its kind in this part of the world.

The JRD Tata Memorial Library Annex and Digital Library located opposite NCSI was inaugurated on 12th March 1998 by Mr. Ratan Tata. Some of the library collections like technical reports, standards, patents and theses are located in this building.
