BOOK-SEARCH : A HELP
As a service organization established in 1968 standing, DK have come to have a prodigious database that comprises far more than a hundred thousand Indian titles in English language alone! Here, however, we have set out the more recent works, i.e., the ones that have poured into DK's Acquisition Programme since 1991 – barring, though, a few older records as well.
Book-Search is intended to primarily aid the "general" reader/user. And, therefore, we must apologize to the librarians/specialists for not conforming to the AACR or other technical cataloguing formats.

As the list of books here is just a partial representation of our database (covering, as it does, the period 1991 onwards), it may fail to show up the Indian Publication you have been looking for. If, in this event, you let us know your requirement: whether an old publication or a new release, we shall try to impart the relevant information from our office records.
Identifying the missing links in the names/words concerning a book's Author, Title, Place of Publication, or Publisher, the search engine inheres the capabilities to handle truncation wildcard: (*). NOTE: "*" works only at the end of search words.
