use and management of major library consortia in india

  1. 1. UGC-Infonet, INDEST-AICTE and CSIR Consortia: Management and Use
  2. 2. Introduction The ‘Information Revolution’ has made Libraries around the world to adopt new philosophies and technologies for information dissemination and also reduce the cost of information. Maintaining the dept and depths of collection is greatest challenge confronting libraries, be it, academic, special, national or public, Libraries .it is difficult to acquire all the materials needed by the clientele. Partnership and cooperation in local, national and international level have become enviable for all libraries. Resource sharing/library cooperation is achieving through the establishment of consortium over networks.

  6. 6. Purpose Library Perspectives: The general perception among libraries is that a consortium should enable libraries to purchase and provide access to more resources than they currently have, with lesser spending than what they currently spend and gain net savings in current spending. Publisher Perspectives: Publishers look at consortia as an instant mass-market opportunity to expand their market base in many times both in terms of client base and revenues. True Perspectives: Consortia models are still in an evolving phase, constantly affected by technological changes. Hence, consortia development requires an open dialogue between the two parties-libraries and publishers/vendors, in a spirit of partnership to help their common beneficiary, the end user, whose needs and usage alone can justify the sustenance of whatever new consortia models that publishers can offer and libraries can adopt.
