The maintenance of a good reference library has been an important part of SSA’s mandate since its inception. The SSA library was opened in 1977 and and its strength is an extensive collection on Sri Lankan history, politics, economy and society. The SSA strongly encourages the use of its library by local and international students.
Access to the SSA library is preferably by prior appointment (to avoid any inconveniences to the readers) on weekdays from 10am to 5pm.
The SSA library also provides photocopying services to users.
Cost of Photocopying:
Single Side: Rs. 4
Double Side: Rs. 5
Restrictions: Due to copyright restrictions it is not possible to photocopy more than 10% of a book that has not been published by the SSA.
