THE ARCHIVE AND ACCESS PROJECT

Aimed to set up a consortium of archives and libraries in India with the purpose of catalogue-sharing

>> In order to facilitate catalogue-sharing, we held basic workshops in digital cataloguing for librarians, as well as provide server space for an online shared catalogue.

>> Currently, the directory page and the blog are active

 

WHAT is THE IMPORTANCE OF A CONSORTIUM?

>> It serves a community of local scholars such as schools and colleges who would otherwise not have access to these resources.

>> Reduces the cost of archiving by avoiding duplication of digitized material. Participating institutions can avail of the entire holding from the database at a discounted rate or on the basis of exchange.
