In India, there is not even a single guide to belles letters and arts for English speaking readers. Unfortunately there is negligible accounting of art materials whether reference sources or other art information carriers such as books, periodicals, thesis’s etc. This is essential for any art scholar to whet his appetite. An extensive survey of the output of art resources and their systematic documentation is a stupendous task, but being art connoisseur we have once again taken up another challenging work of our own. It is sad to unfold that we have had enough bitter experiences with government aided premier art institutions where we have simply witnessed their total apathy towards the significance of information services and products. Even information professionals are offering their labor of love only in science and social science sectors. Nevertheless, we are happy that the current venture is a pioneer attempt to reconnoiter the literature available in linguistics, literature and variegated domains of fine arts. Such individual Endeavour is helping us in gaining experiences in both the bibliographical works as well as in the subject areas. While assembling information tools coverings ever-widening domains of dance, drama, music or literally arts, the whole process has become truly an intellectual exercise.
