Our foremost concern is to make available to our customers any publication in any Indian/major South Asian language from the Indian subcontinent. And in this our unique resourcefulness comes to full view. It should not be therefore surprising that within a short time we have gradually expanded our services and made an enviable place for ourselves among the service organisations at the global level.
Over time, we have evolved and diversified our services. Today, we procure for our customers a whole range of publications—not only publications from different parts of India but also publications from other South Asian countries. We offer services for Sanskrit, Nepali and Tibetan language books apart from those in English and 12 Indian languages which include Bengali (published in both from India and Bangladesh), Punjabi and Urdu (published in both India and Pakistan). We are proud to inform our customers that we now receive nearly 28,000 books of South Asian origin every year. A lot of Tibetan language books have been appearing from India. DK started cataloguing that literature in the early 1980s and later began adding those published from Bhutan as well. The books cater to a range of customers associated with different academic studies and professions, and belonging to various age groups including children.
Increasingly non-conventional methods of publishing are gaining popularity in the South Asian region and our effort is to offer what is available in terms of these services as well. Therefore, we try to make available CD-RoMs, microfilms/microfiche, videos, particularly authentic copies of DVDs of popular Bollywood movies which are a rage not only in South Asia but also in other parts of the world, and audios (including Indic languages’ learning kits).
Our highly comprehensive coverage has made our website the largest book database from South Asia offering books for sale. The website has also been selected as an Associate site to the Asian Studies WWW Virtual Library and is treated as a key resource for networked Asian studies reach and teaching activities.
