Kapil Sibal, Union Minister for Human Resource Development, India recently, formally launched the 'National Library and Information Services Infrastructure for Scholarly Content (N-LIST)'. The N-LIST project provides access to more than 2,100 electronic journals and 51,000 electronic books to students, researchers and faculty from colleges and other beneficiary institutions through server(s) installed at the Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) Centre.
Faculty, staff students and researches from colleges covered under section 12B of University Grants Commission (UGC) Act are eligible to access e-resources through the N-LIST project. Registration of the above mentioned colleges is required, however, on the N-LIST Website. Currently, 665 colleges are registered members. The project provides for cross-subscription to e-resources subscribed by the two Consortia, i.e. subscription to INDEST-AICTE resources for universities and UGC-INFONET resources for technical institutions.
