INSTITUTIONal memberships



  • IEEE All-Society Periodicals Package (ASPP), is a scholarly research database that indexes, abstracts, and provides full-text for articles and papers on computer science, electrical engineering and electronics.
  • IEEE (ASPP) is accessed via the IEEE Xploredigital library,which is available online or in print and provides access to the IEEE core collection of engineering, electronics, and computer science periodicals.
  • The database mainly covers material from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. IEEE ASPP Online combines high-quality technical literature with the power of online searching.
  • IEEE ASPP Online is available as an institutional anniversary subscription in a single-site user license.

  • National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) Project developed by the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT KGP), under the aegis of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India.
  • It is a single window platform providing learning resources that make e-Learning and education accessible to all, bringing to users of all demographics, digital repositories from India and the world.
  • It develops a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time.
  • NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages.
  • It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners.
  • It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources.
  • User phone state is required to uniquely generate an id (required) by encrypting their Phone state specific information and this id initiates the handshaking mechanism with the NDL API for connection establishment. This mechanism is there to ensure and enable security. All permissions requested are to be allowed to enable the mandatory security features.

  • DELNET is a very important library network which provides online access, inter alia, to a select list of online full text foreign journals, full text US patent literature, union catalog of books, journals, theses, dissertations, etc. Its Document Delivery Service (DDS), which provides xerox copies of required journal articles, chapter of books etc, is extremely useful.
  • It provides an array of facilities including E-mail to its member-libraries including both institutional and associate institutional members. DELNET’s relentless efforts in resource sharing have proved extremely effective. It has indeed been a big leap towards the modernization of libraries in India.

  • NPTEL is joint initiative funded by Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Government of India and coordinated by IIT Madras and other IIT’s. The project’s central idea is to put recorded lectures taught by its member institutes online for open access. It is one of the most extensive educational YouTube channel covering engineering, basic sciences, and some humanities and social science subjects.
  • The main objective of NPTEL is to make learning material available to students of engineering institutions through easier means.
  • The broad aim of the scheme is to facilitate the competitiveness of Indian industry in the global markets through improving the quality and reach of engineering.


Based on the recommendation of an Expert Committee, the Ministry of HRD (now renamed as Ministry of Education) has formed e-ShodhSindhu merging three consortia initiatives, namely UGC-INFONET Digital Library Consortium, NLIST and INDEST-AICTE Consortium. The e-ShodhSindhu will continue to provide current as well as archival access to more than 10,000 core and peer-reviewed journals and a number of bibliographic, citation and factual databases in different disciplines from a large number of publishers and aggregators to its member institutions including centrally-funded technical institutions, universities and colleges that are covered under 12(B) and 2(f) Sections of the UGC Act.

SWAYAM PRABHA (40 DTH channels)

The SWAYAM PRABHA is a group of 40 DTH channels devoted to telecasting high-quality educational programs on a 24X7 basis using the GSAT-15 satellite. Every day, there will be new content for at least (4) hours which would be repeated 5 more times a day, allowing the students to choose the time of their convenience. The contents are provided by NPTEL, IITs, UGC, CEC, and IGNOU. The INFLIBNET Centre maintains the web portal. This Platform is where several hundreds of courses have been hosted for the benefit of the aspiring Students which are available under SWAYAM/NPTEL online courses together. The SWAYAM PRABHA DTH Channel facilities are available and used by the SNSCT students.


Faculty members deliver the courses by taking inputs available in online technical links like

  • To encourage youth to read for pleasure
  • To develop attitude and
  • To promote library usage.
