UGC-INFONET digital library consortium was not considered feasible for the colleges
and practically it was possible to give access to them through the consortium.
Moreover most of the journals subscribed are not required at college level students,
especially in rural & backward areas. So a smaller bouquet with select titles has been
prepared under a new programme N-List and it is being offered to colleges only. It
facilitates access to e-resources to students, researchers and faculty from colleges
through proxy servers. N-List provides scholarly information in the e-format at
discounted rates.
