INFLIBNET (Information and Library Network)
The University Grants Commission (UGC) in its attempt to establish networking has taken the initiative and decided to develop a network of academic libraries to effectively mange and administer the resources of these libraries and provide efficient library services to a large number of users, using modern computer and communications technologies. As a consequence of UGC 's efforts INTLIBNET, a network of university and college libraries in India was established in 1988. The network became functional in 1991. As part of its development plan, INFLIBNET provided financial assistance to a large number of university libraries to modernise their operations using computer technology.
