In the digital era, research scientists are predominantly dependent on electronic resources (e-resources) to fulfill their information needs. Consortia have facilitated access to numerous electronic information resources in S&T institutions. The DST, Government of India supports 20 autonomous R&D institutions that have access to information resources through a consortium.
