Our research unit's documentation centre covers the
Himalayas (Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, Sikkim and the North
Indian States); it includes 15,000 books, theses,
reports, off-prints, 1,300 maps and 800 periodicals on
numerous disciplines: mainly human sciences
(anthropology, geography, history, economics, politics,
languages, arts ...) but also life sciences and geology.
All documents received are catalogued and indexed,
periodicals and collective works are examined. The library
is computerised and at present more than 45,000 references
can be consulted.
Access to the complete database
including all sorts of documents (books, theses, reports,
periodicals and different categories of grey literature,
off-prints, maps) as well as perusal of articles from
periodicals and collective works.
The printed list was previously reserved
for correspondents who had regular exchanges with the
centre (dispatch of off-prints or publications). It is now
on a free access basis. It includes documents acquired or
received, so please continue to send us your
publications so that they can figure in the
