About meThe American Institute for Lankan Studies (AILS), a non-profit company registered in Sri Lanka, serves as the Colombo center for AISLS. It provides a wide range of services to AISLS members and other researchers working in the humanities and social sciences. Staff at the Colombo center carry out activities that support digitization and/or preservation of important research resources, including endangered historical and contemporary material and supports the nurturing of long-term intellectual agendas and epistemic communities in selected fields (currently historiography and art history). In collaboration with Sri Lankan public universities and other local organizations, AILS also supports efforts to strengthen teaching and research on Sri Lanka in selected humanities and social science fields.

About my libraryThe center offers a reference library of about 1,500 books and a selection of journals, offprints, conference proceedings, and electronic resources, including JSTOR. The library is open to both local and foreign readers and its book holdings are available in an up-to-date online catalogue. AILS staff members can provide assistance in using the book collection and in accessing JSTOR. Depending the topic, AILS staff may also be able to offer more substantive research advice.
