Welcome to Indian Theological Library Association website. ITLA seeks to invite theological institutions and librarians from theological seminaries in India to become members of ITLA. The main projects planned are a directory of Theological Librarians in India, a Union List of Serials in Indian Theological Libraries, and a Union List of Catalogues.

Initially membership included thirty-six libraries associated with Senate of Serampore College. The Executive committee recently decided to open its membership to other theological libraries too, which are accredited by ATA and seminaries managed by Catholic churches in India. A three day national Triennial al conference has been planned for October 2005. The Executive Committee functions under the direct instructions of the general body.
