Thank you for your interest in the Archives at NCBS. The Archives holdings capture institutional histories and also serve as a space for the history of contemporary biology in India. These are in the form of documents, photographs, oral histories and print and audiovisual material. The Archives holdings do not circulate.

The Archives reading room is open to the public. Scholars and other qualified researchers may apply in writing for access to the collections. All enquiries must be in writing and should state in full the researcher’s purpose in consulting the Archives. The Archives does not provide research services. We encourage researchers to visit the archives in person and take notes from the material that they consult.

Completion of a registration form will be required prior to admission to the collections. No registration fees are charged for using the research facility.
