Welcome to IndCat

The development of Union Databases of various library resources i.e. Books, Theses and Serials have been one of the most important activities of the Centre since its inception. In the beginning, the Centre has funded potential universities of the country for creating bibliographic records of their library collections.

The Centre has developed "IndCat: Online Union Catalogue of Indian Universities" that contains bibliographic records of Books, Theses and Serials contributed by participating universities in all disciplines, i.e. Computer Science, Philosophy, Religion, Social Sciences, Technology, Arts, Literature, History and Science.

Currently IndCat Book Database has 1,63,72,706 Unique Records with 2,41,47,621 holding details of 286 Indian Universities, Theses Database has 4,52,469 Unique Ph.D Records of 460 Universities, Serial Database has 37,159 Records of 239 Institutions.

UGC's Library Automation Scheme

The University Grants Commission (UGC), on recommendation of the INFLIBNET Centre, had given financial aid to 142 universities during IX Plan period and 24 universities during IX/XII Plan periods for automation of their libraries with software and training support from the INFLIBNET Centre.

The Centre proactively helped these universities to automate their libraries. Specialized training programmes were organized on topics related to library automation, standard bibliographic formats, tools and techniques and retro-conversion.
