With a stock of more than aprox. 47,000 printed books, it caters to the genuine needs of the lovers of Sanskrit as much as possible.

Manuscripts Section

For the antiquarian researchers the institutions is a paradise since all the normal difficulties faced by the user of Libraries in India in handling ancient materials have been attempted to be removed through simplification of process of making the materials available. Our manuscripts, numbering Aprox 16,508 are very rich in respect of Dharmaśāstras and Navyanyāya, of which those mentioned in the first category have all been processed, systematised, catalogued in both physical and Digital format (14,251) and well- preserved in such a form that on demand within a minute they may be made available to the user. This is a rare feature. We have already published different Descriptive Catalogues of Sanskrit manuscripts on Tantra, Nyāya ,Dharmaśāstra , Smṛti and Kosa.


Very recently our library started to digitize the entire manuscript collection with the help of National Manuscript mission of the Govt. Of India. On behalf of NMM, CBSL Group is conducting the digitization project with the help of two modern renowned scanners BOOK EYE-4 & BOOK EYE-2. They have already digitized approx 3000 manuscript within nine month.
