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.

INFLIBNET Centre has received 1,41,85,886 bibliographic records from 184 participating universities, out of which Book Database contains 91,19,136 unique records and 1,11,77,468 holding records from across the country. Serial Database contains 35,234 records from 229 institutions. Theses Database contains 4,38,733 unique Ph.D theses records of 456 universities.

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.
