Makes it happen

A one-stop user-oriented Portal / Gateway for Academic Resources for the researchers, students, academicians, administrators  etc includes collection of, Engineering News, links, services, e-journals (Open access and subscription based), e-books, software, applications, database, mailing lists/discussion groups, articles/papers/reports/standards, organisational home pages, thesis / dissertations, educational materials, news, resource guides, bibliographies, institutional repositories, information about seminars/conferences etc..etc..

Objectives of the portal:

– Internet as a whole is not well organised.
– Users do not find what they are searching for and still waste hours looking, are frequently arguments against the Internet.
– Search engines have no inbuilt mechanism for matching retreival to the age, level or experience of the user or to the purpose of the study.

– Organise digital information, thus reduce the barrier of users having to remember multiple log-on.

– ‘Information Repackaging‘ in a convenient and effective form to a target audience defined for the purpose.

– Keep Updated !

The Portal / gateway is being populated with sufficient contents day by day..
