The Elizabeth Colson Research and Documentation Centre is the information resource unit of the Institute of Economic and Social Research (INESOR). It stocks information resources in both print and electronic format in support of the six research programmes undertaken at INESOR.The center holds an excellent collection of books, journals both print and non-print /electronic materials as well as manuscripts and offprints, governement reports, historical and cultutral information.
The centre was set up primarily to support the research needs of the Intistitute but over the years has become famaous to researchers,lecturers, students and the general public with interest in Social Science Research.
The migration of the the ECRDC database from CDS-ISIS to the Unicorn Library Management System used in the University of Zambia Main library has made it possible for our collection to be searchable any where in the world through the library catalogue on the UNZA website.
We are open from 08.00 hours to 17.00 hours Monday to Friday and is closed during lunch hour, weekends and holidays.
