History

Library

The Library programme of Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute has the distinction of completing more than forty years as one of the major initiatives in the area of reference materials for Canadian Member Institutions.

In 1968 a joint announcement of the Government of Canada and the Government of India,with idea of an Institute to promote scholarly activity between India and Canada gave birth to the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute. The incepotion of the Library programme (India Studies) was developed at that time.

Initially, the programme emphasis was on humanities and social sciences, but gradually have broadened further into the field of science and technology, development studies and sustainability.

Three Canadaian universities - University of Toronto, McGill University, and the University of British Columbia, are the founding members for these programmes.

Microfilm Project

In August 1973 SICI initiated a microfilm project with collaboration with National Archives of India which is the repository of the non-current records of the Government of India for the use of administrators and scholars. Microform is a felicitous medium for the preservation of rare manuscripts, printed materials and documents against potential loss or damage resulting from excessive circulation and age, not to mention increasing their accessibility and circulation without direct contact with the originals. The objective of the project was to microfilm the materials of research value for scholarly use of Canadian and India researchers and thus to preserve them. A copy of all materials microfilmed throughout the duration of this project is available at the University of Toronto.
