The IIMI Learning Centre (IIMI LC), with its wide range of collection of knowledge resources and innovative information services, fills an essential requisite in the intellectual pursuits for our students, faculty and the surrounding community. IIMI LC, a hybrid Centre with the state-of-the-art technological applications holds knowledge resources predominantly related to management and allied subjects. The entire LC collection of books, print journals/magazines along with its wide range of e-collection including e-journals, e-books, online databases, CD-ROM collection etc., are accessible through the Institute’s network and wi-fi.
The LC building has a sprawling space of about 27000 sq. ft., with central air-conditioning and designated areas for different sections of the IIMI LC, providing the right ambiance for reading and reflection.
The broad objectives of IIMI LC are:
- To build a state-of-the-art knowledge resources centre for management and allied subjects;
- To acquire need-based resources to meet information requirements of the academic community of the Institute; and,
- To provide proactive and innovative reference services to the user community.
Due to the growing needs and preference of members, LC focuses more on subscription to online resources than printed documents. In the last few years, e-resources of the IIMI LC increased considerably in terms of number and subject coverage.
In addition to circulation and acquisition services, the Learning Centre provides reference, photocopying and scanning services to members. Documents, which are not available in the IIMI LC, are sourced from other (IIsM, IIsT and other major) institutions in the country through a robust inter-library loan arrangement.
External membership is granted under certain specified terms and conditions to business/industrial and government setups as well as academics (Research Scholars) and IIMI Alumni.
To maintain the highest level of service standards in meeting users’ requirements, the IIMI LC operates 362 days a year, remaining closed only on the three national holidays i.e. January 26 Republic Day, August 15 Independence Day and October 02 Gandhi Jayanti.
