Formatted Abstract/Summary Abstract: Libraries all over the world practice resource sharing by maintaining their links with resourceful libraries to borrow information materials. Many medical college libraries in developing countries are very difficult to purchase basic reading material for their students due to ever increasing price of books and journals.
The National Medical Library, India (NML) procures over 1600 (print) medical journal, and it disseminates over 8000 photocopy of articles to different medical colleges across the country. The World Health Organization, SEARO also makes use of NML resources for document delivery to South East Asian countries.
Advancement of electronic publishing provided unique opportunity to group of libraries having common subject interest to conduct cooperative purchase of electronic journals in most cost-effective manner. This resulted into development of a new trend to develop consortium of electronic journals in many developing countries.
This article discussed in detail the initiative taken by the National Medical Library (India) by starting ERMED (Electronic Resources in MEDicine) electronic journal consortium to meet the information needs of health professionals in India. The paper also covered the other important services provided by NML to develop a strong base of Health Information Network in the country.
