  4. 4. Indian Institute of Technology Delhi Indian National Digital Library in Engineering Sciences and Technology Consortium INDEST-AICTE Consortium Opening ROpening ROpening ROpening ROpening Remarksemarksemarksemarksemarks On behalf of INDEST and my own behalf, I welcome you to this 10th Annual Meet of INDEST– AICTE Consortium which is providing electronic resources to various science, engineering and management institutions of the country. The idea of creation of the library consortia took shape at the “National Seminar on Knowledge Networking in Engineering & Technology Education and Research” held at IIT Delhi in December 2000 under the aegis of Ministry of Human Resource Development. The seminar was attended by more than 150 participants from engineering and technological institutions from all over the country. Based on the feedback, ministry decided to set-up the expert group in April 2002 for the consortia– based subscription to electronic resources for Technical Education System in India. The “Indian National Digital Library in Engineering Sciences and Technology (INDEST) Consortium” was set up in 2003 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) on the recommendation of an Expert Group appointed by the Ministry. IIT Delhi was designated as the Consortium Headquarter to coordinate its activities. The Ministry provides funds required for subscription to electronic resources for about 65 centrally-funded Government institutions including IITs, IISc Bangalore, NITs, IIITs, IIMs and few other Institutions that are considered as core members of the Consortium. The benefit of consortia-based subscription to electronic resources is not confined to its core members but is also extended to all educational institutions under its open-ended proposition. About 60 Govt./Govt.-aided engineering colleges are provided access to selected electronic resources with financial support from AICTE. The INDEST-AICTE Consortium administered through various committees like National Steering Committee, National Advisory Committee, National Review Committee and Negotiation committee. INDEST-AICTE Consortium is an active partner in Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) jointly with UGC-INFONET Digital Library Consortium, INFLIBNET Centre (NME-ICT/N-LIST) and provides: PPPPPrrrrrofofofofof.

  5. 5. i) Cross subscription to e-resources subscribed by the two Consortia, i.e. subscription to INDEST- AICTE Consortium resources for universities and UGC-INFONET resources for technical institutions, and ii) Access to selected e-resources to colleges. Initially there were 37 core members of the consortium but due to the opening of new centrally funded institutions like IITs, IIMs, IISERs, NITs, NITTRs the number has increased to 65. Due to the increase in the number of institutions, prices of the e-resources and currency conversion rate the consortium is facing an uphill task to run the show in the best possible way. The budget has not been increased in the same proportion. Despite these factors, the year gone by has witnessed an all round improvement in its performance. Not even one e-resource has been dropped from the list of subscribed resources till 2013. I hope that the INDEST-AICTE Consortium will flourish more and achieve many more milestones with the inclusion of the new centrally funded institutions and with support from all quarters especially MHRD. INDEST-AICTE Consortium is also actively participating in the concept of National consortium. The Annual meet, like the one we are having today and tomorrow, is an important annual event being organized in the core institutions since its establishment. IIT Delhi hosted first 4 annual meet, later this event was hosted by other institutions like IIT Roorkee (2007), IIT Bombay (2008), IIT Kharagpur (2009), IIT Madras (2010) and IIM Ahmedabad (2013). I am grateful to these institutes for agreeing to hold this meet. This is an important platform where member institutions share their best practices, concerns and issues during the event. The consortium gets feedback from these meets and addresses various issues faced by the member community. Since the last 10 years the consortia derived lots of benefits from these meets. It is seen that in India the research output of the country has increased after development of various consortia in India. I hope that 10th Annual Meet of the INDEST-AICTE Consortium which is being held first time in any of the NITs and first time in the North Eastern region of the country will deliberate various issues in details and will give a road map to future management of consortia and e-resources for the fulfillment of the objectives of various institutions and as a whole to help in the development of the society. With this I wish to congratulate the organizer of this meet and convey my best wishes for its success. PPPPPrrrrrofofofofof. R.K. Shevgaonk. R.K. Shevgaonk. R.K. Shevgaonk. R.K. Shevgaonk. R.K.

  6. 6. MessageMessageMessageMessageMessage It is a privilege on our part to host the 10th Annual Meet and Workshop of INDEST-AICTE Consortium jointly organized by NIT Silchar and INDEST-AICTE Consortium, IIT Delhi during 05-06 May, 2014 at NIT, Silchar. The INDEST-AICTE Consortium has been one of the most remarkable and ambitious steps ever taken in the country. The incorporation of digital means in imparting resources among the various engineering and technological institutes will ensure an adequate documentation, dissemination and management of information, thereby provide unprecedented platform for research and innovation, fostering today’s knowledge-based economy. It is my strong belief that the detailed discussions, analyses from various dimensions and the resultant findings of this annual meet will have the power to drive our nation to a brighter, prosperous and thriving future. The National Institute of Technology, Silchar has been successful in creating a distinct bench mark of excellence in the field of professional and technical education through Research, Training, Consultancy and Innovation. I sincerely hope that this annual meet and workshop will help in creating a long term partnership between NIT Silchar and INDEST-AICTE Consortium, IIT Delhi. I wish the Annual Meet and Workshop a grand success. I also wish the participants a pleasant stay at Silchar. Pro. N.V.

  7. 7. MessageMessageMessageMessageMessage I am pleased that NIT Silchar agreed to organize the 10th Annual Meet & Workshop of INDEST- AICTE Consortium during 5th -6th May 2014. This is for the first time that the Annual Meet is being organized in the North Eastern Region of the country and in an NIT. INDEST-AICTE Consortium, since its inception in 2003, has been playing a vital role to provide online access of many e-resources to its member institutions. Inclusion of some of the AICTE approved institutions to the Consortium has added to its color. In the beginning only 37 MHRD funded institutions were the core members of the consortium but now the total number of members has increased to 65 due to the addition of new opened centrally funded technical institutions. Although it has affected the budget of the consortium, the year gone has witnessed an all round improvement in its performance. Not even one e-resource has been dropped from the list of subscribed e-resources till 2013. I hope that the INDEST-AICTE Consortium will flourish more and achieve many more milestones with the inclusion of the new centrally funded institutions and with support from all quarters especially MHRD. E-Resources are being increasingly used by the students, faculty and researchers. The change in user’s behavior and use pattern are forcing libraries to rethink and align their operation. Focus on use and management of e-resources will no doubt help the Librarians, library users and participants of the workshop. I wish that the consortium will continue to flourish and provide the services to its clientele to the highest level of their satisfaction. I wish the Workshop a great success. PPPPPrrrrrofofofofof.

The concept of digital library for the engineering and technological institutes has been an innovative step in order to raise quality of education and research activities and is crucial for the economic development of our country. The use of modern amenities in libraries and their digitization has indeed redefined the ways of learning. I hope that this Annual Meet and Workshop will fulfil its main objective by providing a platform for exchange of knowledge, views and ideas among the librarians, information specialists, scientists, students and other participants from different specializations. To look into its growth, the Ministry of Human Resource Development on the recommendation of an Expert Group had set up the INDEST in 2003. Since then there were 65 centrally-funded Government institutions including IITs, IISc Bangalore, NITs, ISM, IIITs, IIMs, NITTTR’s and few other institutions that are considered as core members of the Consortium with the IIT Delhi been designated as the Consortium Headquarters to coordinate its activities. In 2005, the consortium was renamed as INDEST-AICTE Consortium. Today, it has reached to that arena, where the Consortium subscribes to over 12,000 electronic journals from a number of publishers and aggregators. I feel proud to be associated with this Annual Meet and Workshop. I wish the Annual Meet a grand success. PPPPPrrrrrofofofofof. F A T. F A T. F A T. F A T.

Following his recommendations, the first Indian Institute of Technology was established in the year 1950 in Kharagpur. In his report, Shri Sircar had suggested that such Institutes should a country. The Government having accepted these recommendations of the Sircar Committee decided to establish more Institutes of Technology with the assistance of friendly countries were prepared to help. The first offer of help came from USSR who agreed to collaborate in the establishment of an Institute through UNESCO at Bombay. This was followed by the Institutes of Technology at Madras, Kanpur and Delhi with collaborations with W respectively. Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati was established in 1995 and the University of Roorkee was converted into an IIT in 2001. The Government of India negotiated with the British Government for collaboration in sett an Institute of Technology at Delhi. The British Government agreed in principle to such collaboration, but was inclined initially to start in a modest way. It was therefore agreed that a College of Engineering & Technology should be established at D called the Delhi Engineering College Trust was established with the help of the UK Government and the Federation of British Industries in London. Later H.R.H. Prince Philips, Duke of Edinburgh, during his visit to India, January 28, 1959. The College of Engineering & Technology was registered as a Society on 14th June 1960 under the Societies Registration Act No. XXI of 1860 (Registration No.S1663 of 1960 admissions were made in 1961. The students were asked to report at the College on 16th August 1961 and the College was formally inaugurated on 17th of August 1961 by Prof. Humayun Kabir, Minister of Scientific Research & Cultural Affairs.

The “Indian National Digital Library in Engineering Sciences and Technology (INDEST) Consortium” was set up in 2003 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) on the recommendation of an Expert Group appointed by the Ministry. The IIT Delhi was designated as the Consortium Headquarters to coordinate its activities. The Ministry provides funds required for subscription to selected electronic resources for (65) institutions including IISc, IITs, NERIST,ISM, IIIT, IIITM, IISERs, NITs, NITTTR, IIMs and a few other centrally-funded Government Institutions through the consortium headquarters set-up at the IIT Delhi. Besides, 60 Government or Government-aided engineering colleges and technical departments in universities have joined the Consortium with financial support from the AICTE. The Consortium was re- named as INDEST-AICTE Consortium in December 2005 with the AICTE playing a pivotal role in enrolling its approved engineering colleges and institutions as members of the Consortium for selected e-resources at much lower rates of subscription. The Consortium enrolls engineering and technological institutions as its members and subscribe to electronic resources for them at discounted rates of subscription and favorable terms and conditions. The consortium has served over 1235 institutions under its Self supported member. The consortium website at http://paniit.iitd.ac.in/indest hosts searchable databases of journals and member institutions to locate journals subscribed by the Consortium, their URLs and details of member institutions.
