The constituent libraries of the proposed network are expected to be first automated and then networked. Within the individual or nodal libraries, the functions thatare to be automated are cataloguing, serials control, acquisition, fund accounting, circulation and local user services. The network centre would provide services such as Current Awareness, SOl and Union Catalogue, and access to National and International networks. The main features of CALIBNET are - online/offline input, editing, and retrieval of records. Users will be able to access databases in real time using real time software. System will allow online requests for documents. MARC format and AACR2 are recommenended for creating the inhouse catalogue records and CCF, which is compatible to the ISO - 27(1) for exchange of bibliographic data among the participating insti- tutions. CALIBNET has been envisaged as a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). Entire network is proposed to be carried out in two phases. In phase 1, institutions in the Jadavpur and Rajabazar clusters are to be covered. In phase 2, all other clusters and stand alone institutions will be connected to the network (Fig. 1&2). The library network at Calcutta will be connected to similar networks in Delhi, Bombay, Madras and other major cities using inter- city PSDN. The network will have access to the Ann Lib Sci Doc

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
