Mala  Mam,

                  thanks a lot for this useful information.


INFLIBNET is a major National Programme initiated by the UGC in 1991 with its Head Quarters at [Gandhinagar], . Initially started as a project under the IUCAA, it became an independent Inter-University Centre in 1996.

Thank you sir ....

Dear Madam

I have a few observations,

I feel you have split one point into several.  For ex. point 1,2 & 3 can be combined as -

1. OCLC is the biggest network system in the world. It stands for Online Computer Library Centre. Earlier it was known as Ohio College Library Centre.

Why unnecessarily split into 3 different points? Coherently (together) they appear meaningful, disjointed they appear insignificant facts

Likewise 5,6,7 & 8.

Same is the case with DELNET, NICNET, SIRNET etc. 

I make this observation not to demean your efforts but to help add value to the same.




Very nice Mam, Thanks for sharing.
