The present Directory of Bibliographies is an alphabetical arrangement of research works prepared in Sanskrit in Indian Universities. Bibliography is a detailed statement of the works consulted by a scholar in preparing document on a given topic. It forms the key for opening the treasure of Research and enter into the field. It provides up-to-date information available about a particular field of learning. Arranged in an alphabetical order, it throws light to a wide range of topics already undertaken by different scholars. Once the source is given, being the basic infrastructure for any type of research, one gets firsthand information on various methods applied, topics discussed and so on. As a result it helps the scholar to know his or her present position and guides him or her as to how to go about it.
The present work is mainly compiled
to fulfill that purpose. In the first case it helps scholars to avoid
repetitions of any work, so that one can avoid last minute disappointment. It is
this Bibliography that helps us to reach the desired goal. So much so the name
of the Universities and the fields worked in those Universities will also show
the way to the talented scholars to choose their area and the place.
