Abstract This paper highlights the current outreach practices at Foreign Mission Libraries and Information Centres in Delhi. The FMLICs provide a gateway to a range of information and activities promoting mutual interest and understanding. The concept of outreach is not new to these libraries and information centres, it has been deeply embedded in the soul of their services, resources and existence. The FMLICs employ a variety of outreach tools and techniques to accomplish their goals. This study explores the present outreach practices employed by the FMILCs.
