On the direction and encouragement of the Department Culture the Central Reference Library, Kolkata is actively participating in the development of the North Eastern Region. As part of this activity the CRL regularly organize training programmes for Library professionals of the North Eastern region on the Compilation of Bibliographies in their respective languages. Many of these languages are very rich but itís published wealth is not properly listed or preserved .Theses publications do not reach National Library under Delivery of Books Act nor it get listed in the Indian National Bibliography. In order to create an awareness and to encourage the respective language professionals to take up the task of listing their language publications we have organized training programmes at Guwahati (Assam), Agartala (Tripura) , Shillong (Meghalaya), Kohima,( Nagaland) and Aizawal (MIzoram) for the library professionals so that they will be able to compile bibliographies in their own languages. Around 250 professionals of the North East  were benefited by this programme by now. This activity was supported by the University of Guwahati, Birchandra State Library, Agartala and North Eartern Hill University, Shillong, State Libray,, Nagaland and Mizoram University, Aizawal .
