Our primary task is to upgrade the Library with most modern technologies and developed infrastructure. We are in the process of collecting Sanskrit Mulagranthas on every subject along with translations, commentaries and critical editions. Subscribing to maximum number of Indological journals and creating an online database for readers are taken up on priority basis. We have a plan to create an exclusive section in the library dedicated to the complete collection of commentaries, translations, bibliographies and allied writings on Sri Sankaracharya. Our plan is to make Chinmaya International Foundation Sodha Samsthan library a nodal centre for Manuscripts. Digitization of books and Manuscripts are on the anvil. We are also working on to build academic exchanges with reputed Universities and Indological Study Centres. Increasing the number of library membership and refurbishing the Library building are our urgent needs.
