The Indian National Digital Library in Engineering Science and Technology INDEST Consortium was set-up by the ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in the year 2003 with 48 centrally-funded Government institutions including IITs, IISc, NITs, NERIST, ISM, IIIT, IIITM , NITIE, IISER & NITTTR as its core members with a provision to extend it to all engineering colleges and technological institutions under its open ended proposition. While the ministry provides funds required for access to select e-resources for the core members, other institutions may join the consortium for any of its resources by paying for them at highly discounted rates and as INDEST-AICTE Consortium in December 2005 with the AICTE playing pivotal role in enrolling its affiliated engineering colleges and institution as members of the consortium for selecting e-resources at much lower rates of subscription. The consortium has enrolled 908 members including 457 member institutions under its self- supported category. Some of the important activities taken-up are under this initiative are: i) Setting up Interoperable institutional repositories; ii) Electronic submission of theses and Dissertation; and iii) Web-based Union catalogue of journals and other serial publications.
