About this place -

The Doon Library & Research Centre came into existence formally on March 16, 2006 with its registration under the Societies Registration Act. It became functional on December 8, 2006 when its present premises in the Parade Ground were inaugurated by the then Chief Minister Uttarakhand, Hon'ble Shri Narayan Datt Tiwari.The establishment of the institution can be traced to the realization that Dehradun, the premier city of the new state of Uttarakhand, does not have a good library catering to scholars and researchers working in the fields of social sciences and humanities and on Himalayas, including Uttarakhand. Dehradun also lacks a good public library for the general readers. The library thus seeks to fill these gaps. It is, therefore, intended to be developed as:1.An important resource for scholars and researchers in social science and humanities in the state (and even the neighboring states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh), thereby giving a fillip to research in these fields;2.A one-stop repository of material on society, economy, history, culture, ethnography, literature, folklore and polity in the Himalayan areas of India, especially Uttarakhand; and3.A place serving the reading needs of an enlightened and book-loving general public.The library, furthermore, has been conceived as something more than a mere repository of books. It is planned to make it a living institution by organizing talks, discussions, presentations and exhibitions for the general public.Along with the library a research centre devoted to studies on the Himalayan areas of the country in general, and Uttarakhand in particular, from the perspective of social sciences and humanities is also being developed. In fact the idea is to build a research centre around the library so that it becomes a centre of intellectual and academic activity in the region.The library already has over 11000 books on its shelves. It is also subscribing to over 50 journals in social sciences and humanities.
