Abstract:   There has been a paradigm shift the world over, the way how information and knowledge is being generated, stored, accessed, disseminated and consumed. Information and communication technology (ICT) is the game changer in this and it has propelled the growth of large numbers of electronic resources across the world. Organizations now spend a major portion of their budget for subscribing to electronic resources such as e-journals, e-books, bibliographic/full-text databases, online services and web portals. It is imperative on the part of the information professional to have a componentized and a multi-system approach to knowledge technologies and information management. Seamless aggregation and meticulous integration of diverse data streams embracing the traditional as well as the electronic information is the most appropriate strategy to be adopted and applied. Switching over to the technology pedestal shall ensure the information systems an exponential growth in the r-resource base, as well as facility to outreach to a wider community at a 24x7 formula. Information systems could also explore numerous resource base enhancement innovations such as the UGC Infonet, INDEST Consortium etc. and several Open Source Digital Library technologies towards making the library vibrant, resourceful, accessible and visible. More over with the advent of an array of ICT applications and with the upsurge and penetration of a vast variety of electronic content, the multitude of electronic information services will indeed attract and potentially influence the users prompting them to step in and stick to the changed scenario. As a measure of the impact on the scientific and research productivity, the increase in the overall scholarly intellectual capital of the institute could be matched against the improvement in research publications and the conferences, symposia, workshops etc. hosted by the organization. Quality improvement on the courses offered by the organization could also be considered.
