About INFLIBNET Centre
The Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) was established in May 1996 as an independent, autonomous Inter-University Centre (IUC) of the University Grants Commission (UGC). Major activities and services of the Centre includes automation of academic libraries and information centres, creation of union databases of resources available in academic libraries, promote resource sharing amongst academic libraries, promote information access and transfer, support scholarship, learning and academic pursuits. The Centre acts as a nodal agency for networking of libraries and information centres in universities, institutions of higher learning and R & D institutions in India with an aim to promote scholarly communication. The Centre is also responsible for two major initiatives for academic community in universities under its purview. The first initiative, namely "UGC-Infonet Connectivity Programme" provides for networking of university campuses with state-of-the-art campus wide networks and Internet bandwidth, the second initiative called the "UGC-Infonet Digital Library Consortium" provides access to selected scholarly electronic journals and databases in different disciplines.
