The Scientific Information Resource Centre (Library) is the most distinctive structure on campus with its interior spiral ramp leading to a dome that resembles the exterior of the magnificent Guggenheim Museum in New York.
The primary aim of SIRC is to develop, organise, preserve and deliver information and scholarly resources for the ICTS community.
Scientific Information Resource Centre (Library) presently has a collection of more than 2500 print books broadly on Physics and Mathematics. Centre subscribes and provides access to electronic resources from renowned publishers like Cambridge University Press, Institute of Physics, Annual Reviews, Springer, Elsevier, American Mathematical Society, Nature publishing group, American Physical Society, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and so on. The Centre has access to MathSciNet and Web of Science Databases. In addition, the centre provides access to several e-resources through consortia with other centres of TIFR. SIRC also subscribes to magazines and newspapers of general interest.
SIRC services are completely automated with all the required software tools and RFID technology. The centre provides Photocopying, Interlibrary Loan, and Reference Services.
The SIRC ordinarily observes the timings from 08:30 hrs to 24:00 hrs.
