|Objectives of HSLIBNET|
To network all the libraries under BFUHS for minimizing the cost of acquisition and maintenance of learning resources and maximizing their utilization among the faculty, students and researchers in the colleges and institutions affiliated to the Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot.
The following are the benefits of consortia in enhancing academic and research pursuits for the medical community:
1. Resource Sharing: Unlike print where a single issue of a journal/ resource caters the need of an individual at one time, online content of journals offer unlimited access to multi-users cost-effectively with ease at their computer system by a click. The search techniques are also being refined constantly to facilitate the researchers/ faculty members/ students enabling them to add value to their study/ research.
3 The consortium enables access to electronic information resources at highly discounted rates of subscription.
4 It facilitates convenience of desktop access to high-quality e-resources to students and researchers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
5 It facilitates better management of information resources in electronic environment and saves you from the hassles of print resources and their management.
