Dear LIS Professionals,
I have a confusion regarding DELNET.
Is DELNET a database or Network?
Please share your opinions.
Thanks & regards,

Dear Manjunath ji,
DELNET is a developing library Network.They are connected several libraries on National as well as International level. They have many database for access online E-books & journals articles.Its started from Delhi for resource sharing and now Its a top Library network for resource sharing in India. It was initially supported by the National Information System for Science and Technology (NISSAT), Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Government of India.
DELNET has been established with the prime objective of promoting resource sharing among the libraries through the development of a network of libraries. It aims to collect, store, and disseminate information besides offering computerised services to users, to coordinate efforts for suitable collection development and also to reduce unnecessary duplication wherever possible.

DELNET – Developing Library Network is a major operational resource sharing library network in India connecting 1674 libraries in 32 States and UTs in India and seven other countries. DELNET was conceived as a city based library network in Delhi in 1988 and was known as Delhi Library Network, networking the libraries of the Delhi region and was registered as a society in 1992. With the availability of DELNET services on the World Wide Web, its accessibility was soon transformed from the local dial up connectivity for the Delhi region institutions to global access through the web. This gave a great boost to DELNET and it soon crossed geographical boundaries within the country and also became accessible internationally. In 2000 the name of DELNET was changed to DELNET – Developing Library Network. The main objectives of DELNET are to promote resource sharing among the member libraries by collecting, storing and disseminating information and provide networked services to researchers and scholars to supplement their research activity.
