Anyone planning a research trip to Delhi should read Daniel Majchrowicz's archive review in the October 11th 2013 issue of SAGAR: a South Asia Research Journal.
Daniel, a PhD candidate in the field of Islamic Cultures of South Asia at Harvard University, reviews twenty libraries often overlooked by visiting scholars. The online article includes links to library websites (where available), location maps, and lots of helpful tips about the collections and buildings, including the best times to visit them.

The current exhibit 'Hidden Lands and Sealed Mountains: Places and Spaces in a Conservation Landscape' illustrates the work of Riamsara Kuyakanon Knapp, who conducted her doctoral fieldwork on sacred natural sites and the conservation-culture-development nexus in Bhutan with the kind support of the Ugyen Wangchuk Institute for Conservation and Environment, Royal Government of Bhutan.
The exhibition can be viewed during library opening hours. No appointment is required. See: http://www.geog.cam.ac.uk/library/opening/ Afternoons are generally the best time to visit, as the library is quieter.
