Secretary (Sports)-cum-DG, SAI Message


Welcome to the Online Sports Library, SAI Head Office.

Peter Drucker said in 1993 that “Knowledge is the only meaningful resource today”. and I believe Library is a key to that resource.It is one of the the most important assets for an organization to create value and hence, sustainable competitive advantage.

It gives me immense pleasure to announce launching of eLibrary of SAI which is a valuable resource centre in the field of Sports since its inception (1984). I am sure it would facilitate information dissemination many folds not only within four walls of the SAI premises but much beyond that.

The Sports library has a vast collection on various sports disciplines and allied subjects.It has also valuable books pertaining to Olympic & Asian games. It was established with the main objective to provide reading material related to sports and promote the usage of library resources on ‘Sports’ among the users by collecting, storing and disseminating information and by offering manual/ computerized services to the users and encourage lifelong learning using accessible resources in a friendly and helpful environment.

The Online Library Gateway is designed to provide a multitude of resources, both print-based and electronic, as well as to offer detailed information about library & its services, library resources or selected additional resources available in public domain providing access to information from anywhere in the world. As a library user, we hope that you will develop a feeling of pride in being able to comfortably access the library and its resources.

The Sports persons have always played an important role in promoting India’s goodwill all over the world. I believe the Sports eLibrary will surely help people to come much closer to the sports and they will become familiar to the sports culture, especially Sports lovers/ children’s who are interested in sports and wants to pursue sports as their careers will be greatly benefited with the informative contents as we enrich the website gradually with useful materials related to sports.

I am pleased to invite and welcome you all to visit our library at J.N. Stadium and to explore utilize our web-based library and its information services.

With Best wishes,

(Injeti Srinivas)
