In 2014, the Institute of Ismaili Studies (IIS) and the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations – Aga Khan University (AKU-ISMC) established one joint library instead of retaining the two separate libraries that had existed hitherto - offering nowadays also an amazing online catalogue for consultation.
