As one of the objective of CSIR 12FYP Project named KNOWGATE, a fully open source based Integrated Library Management System has been setup.

Under this scheme, full OPAC of CSIR-CMERI is being made available to the outside world.

CSIR-CMERI OPAC can be accessed at http://opac.cmeri.res.in.


The Knowledge Resource Center's facilities are housed in a two storeyed separate building comprising an area over 15000 sqft (1350 sqm) with a well furnished air-conditioned reading hall and an Electronic Library built on the most modern lines in the ground floor. The bound journals, standards and other documents are stored in the first floor.


It has a comprehensive collection of literatures predominantly related to mechanical engineering and its allied areas for meeting the present and future information needs of its users. Some of the major services rendered by the library are reference, reprographic, database search services, audio-visual facility, articles supply on request, documentation services like CAS, bibliographic and such other services. The automated library system greatly facilitates searching for books, journals, articles etc.
