The Reference Library is the platform for information generation and dissemination on poverty and development in Sri Lanka to exchange knowledge amongst information seekers. To do so, the Resource Centre adopts various tools and strategies to communicate the knowledge effectively and efficiently among information seekers and supports research and encourages the use of robust and reliable information.
The Resource base includes CEPAs research publications, over 4,000 resources in the reference collection on impact monitoring, evaluation, research methodology, poverty, development and broad areas of social science in print and digital form, audio-visual material and journals.
The online catalogue will enable search options by author, title and keyword and by the resource type.
Access to the Reference library is free. Resources and services can be accessed by the academia, researchers, undergraduates, development practitioners, government officials and ministries, civil societies and the general public. http://www.povertyportal.lk
