The library was first established in 1967 when the former Samarkand State Pedagogical Institute named after Sadriddin Aini was established. The center during its activities provided support to all staffs and students of the institute to increase the efficiency and quality of the educational process. In connection with the termination of the activities of Samarkand State Pedagogical Institute named after S. Aini in 1992, in connection with the accession to the Samarkand State University, our library continued to function as a branch of the Scientific Library of SamSU. According to the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On the organization of information and library provision of the population of the Republic" dated June 20, 2006 No PQ-381, the library of SamSU became a scientific information resource center, where our library continued to operate as the second branch of the Scientific Information Resource Center (IRC-2). In accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan No. 408 of June 30, 2021, the Uzbek-Finnish Pedagogical Institute of Samarkand State University was established. Therefore, the IRC-2 branch was later transformed into an independent Information Resource Center of the institute. IRC serves the faculty of the institute, master's and bachelor's students, scientific and technical staffs.
