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.

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.
