Darwin Papers from Cambride University


The collection of Charles Darwin's papers at the University Library originates in the work of his son Francis, who published two editions of his father's letters, in 1887 and 1903.  For these editions he collected as many of Charles's letters and papers as possible, which remained in the family after Francis died.  In 1942 the Pilgrim Trust and the Darwin family gave most of these papers to the University Library, another portion being given to the museum recently established at Down House.

International Book Fair INBOFA 2012.

 Mahatma Gandhi University Library Presents INBOFA 2012



International Book Fair, INBOFA2012, is conceived to be an Academic Carnival for the promotion of serious readership through intellectual interactions at the instance of a Book Exhibition, rather than a mere trade-show of books. The focus of INBOFA2012 clearly extends beyond books and book-trade. An unusual Carnival, INBOFA2012 seeks to try and bring academic readership to the ridge of the ocean of knowledge, to have a feel of currents and eddies therein, and experience the publication industry's fascinating ways of distributive navigation. It attracts sellers and buyers, publishers and distributors, readers and readings, authors and editors, besides the general public, to one location of festive occasion. 

A variety of programmes such as theme based discussions, seminars, workshops, authors' meet, book launching and book reading sessions along with cultural and literary events offers additional incentives for the knowledge-seekers as well as the interested public to make it their destination.
