DeLCON Subscribed Journals
The explosion of information and inadequate financial and physical resources has urged libraries to adopt new philosophies and technologies for collection development and to reduce the costs of information. Library consortia are such a strategy, which function as associations of groups of libraries to achieve common objectives.
DeLCON, the Department of Biotechnology e-Library Consortium, is an electronic journal consortium established in January 2009. Currently the 34 members of DeLCON include 16 DBT-funded autonomous research institutions and 18 North-Eastern Region (NER) institutions. A total of 926 specialised journals are currently covered under DeLCON. These are all accessible for DeLCON members through the DeLCON portal (http://delcon.gov.in). NII is a founder member of DeLCON since 2009.
