Bombay Science Librarians’ Association (BOSLA)


History: During mid 70s, the librarians of scientific institutions realised that with the existing resources, it was not possible for them to fully cater to the needs of the scientific community of their organisations due to the steadily rising costs of publications and almost stationary annual budgets for their libraries.

The initiative was then taken by the librarians of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (B.A.R.C.), Department of Chemical Technology, Bombay University (U.D.C.T.), Indian Institute of Technology (I.I.T.), Bombay and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (T.I.F.R.). They started meeting frequently to discuss and explore the possibilities of developing closer ties than routine inter-library loan. As a result of these efforts, the Bombay Science Librarian's Association (BOSLA) was formed in October 1975.
