Anveshi Research Center For Women’s Studies (Library)

Anveshi Research Center For Women’s Studies (Library)
Mahati Rao / fullhyd.com
The library Anveshi (to search, to seek or to inquire) has different levels to it. On one level, it is a search back into the history of women's history and studies. On another, it is to seek after women's rights, their place in society. On the final level, it is to inquire all over the OU campus for this small cloister.

Anveshi houses some of the most extraordinary readings, periodicals and studies into women's history in both English and Telugu. Due to the funds from ICSSR, ICHR and the Ford Foundation, this library is well-stocked with both current and past issues on this subject. As an extension of the Anveshi Research Center, this library helps one delve deep into the theory, culture, history and politics of women's studies and writings.

The most noteworthy thing about this bonsai sanctum of feminist bibliography is the wealth of literature and the amount of dedication that has gone into the documentation of the feminist theories, women's health, women's studies, social sciences etc. Through newspaper clippings, writings, reports and newsletters, the library has been able to keep up-to-date with women related issues. From the great works ranging from essays written by Virginia Wolfe and the famed Lajja by Taslima Nasrin to tracking the efforts of NGOs, Anveshi covers it all.

A treasure house for NGOs, this library is visited by academicians, writers, journalists, students, activists, advocates and government/NGO personnel. Seminars, talks, workshops, conferences, photo exhibitions and discussions are held here.

The exceptionally resourceful center has some timeless literature on the Indian woman dating as far back as to 150 years. They even provide some interesting and significant women's journals written in Telugu. Noted feminist in Andhra Pradesh, Dr. Katyayani, claims that this is one place every woman ought to stop and take some time to read the vast literature it has to offer. She herself has contributed some of her writing such as books, articles etc. (all written in Telugu).

Don't let the maze-like and circuitous hunt for this library kill your enthusiasm to visit it. It is well worth the effort.
