Information Repository

With the impressive growth of National Research Centre for Citrus over the last 25 years in scientific achievements as well infrastructural build-up point of view, it was felt to have an organised information system in support of scientific research. As a result, Library Documentation Unit was established with the aim to serve the scientists, technical staff of the centre and other user agencies across the country. The major objectives of the unit are:

Library Resource Development

The Library Documentation Unit has prepared a variety of information resources consisting of book, Journals, Conference/Seminar/Symposium /Workshop proceeding, report’s atlases dictionaries, encyclopaedia, handbook, cassettes, CDs, reprints of research papers and so on. The total collection of the library holding in 1428 books, 768 back volume of journals, 3400 technical reports od different institutes, 10 databases related to citriculture subject. 

In selection of scientific journals ,a pilot study was made to identify core journals by citation analysis, Above 50 core title were identified and  most of them were subscribed by; the library during the last 25 years. Currently 32 Indian journals and 8 foreign journals are being subscribed at the library.

The entire collection of the library is organised on, modern lines. The book collections are classified and catalogued according to the U.D.C and AACR-II rules for early access to information. The library has an open access system. Specially designed library furniture’s have been made for display of current periodicals and stacking of books and journals.

Marketing of Information Products and Services

The library and information centres have begun to realize that marketing of information products and services is an integral part of library.  Since inception of the centre NRCC scientists   have developed different type of technologies on citrus and related areas.  The technologies  developed at the centre is made available through hard copies to the use of farmers, researchers, private entrepreneurs and policy makers for betterment of citrus growers and industry in large. The selling of material through the library helped in revenue  generation for centre. Since the inception of the centre the library have collected approximately eighteen lakhs  rupees so far.

Documentation Services       

To keep the research staff informed, the latest information added to the library, the current title announcement service (C.T.A.S) is being brought out by the library on regular basis. As a by-product, a monthly current title announcement service is generated which has nearly 100 references per month and distributed to the all scientists of the Centre. The feedback document delivery service is provided to the scientists of the Centre as and when demanded. This keeps scientific and technical staff abreast with latest information received by the library.

Reprography Services : The NRCC Library is having its modern equipped unit and it is providing reprography  services to its user community.

Newspaper Clipping Services

Since inception of the centre the library documentation unit of the centre has been maintaining the news paper clippings of important events related to the citrus and related areas from national and local dailies in Hindi, English and regional languages. The relevant cutting of topical interests, directly or indirectly addressing citrus research and development problem are regularly brought to the notice of the staff of the Centre

NRCC Publications

Centre has published a wide variety of publications in form of 5 books,15 technical bulletins,32 extension bulletins,26 extension folders , 2 manuals 42 scientific chart in English, Hindi and other regional languages. The publications list is being updated periodically and is sent to prominent journals, abstracting/indexing series in order to achieve wider in dissemination of information generated

CeRA- Consortium for e-Resources in Agriculture (A Project under National Agricultural Innovation Programme, ICAR)

The under the CeRA  NRCC Library is providing the quick access to world R& D information as available worldwide to the NRCC scientists and staff to use the online accessibility of scientific journals, campus network .The major scientific journals from- annual reviews and online books to the user community . Under the CeRA total 2740 journals accessible online for our staff through Elsevier science publication, Taylor and Francis, Nature, CSIRO, Annual Reviews, Science Direct, Willey and Blackwell, Springr verlag.

Computer Application in Library

Having developed information resource base, need based information services have initi8ated in order to keep the user informed about latest information added in the library. In manually operated environment; the services had inherent merits and demerits so as to have access to requisite information. These aspects have necessitated thinking for introducing the modern means for better information handling. It was decided to introduce computer application for developing a centralized house in bibliographical information system. The library currently has three computers.

Library Services through LAN

Local Area Network (LAN) has been established at the Centre. Three computer nodes have been provided for access to library information system from where bibliographical searching with various quarry modes is available. The node consists of Pentium computer with 1.2 GB, E-Mail and internet facility has also been provided for easy access to world information.

Developing Electronic Information Resources

Ø  The facility for free electronic journal and downloads; using the internet facility has been built up.

Ø  CD-Rom R/W facility is used for downloading of electronic journals article’s and publishers catalogue etc.,


Ø  The LAN is established at the Centre with two nodes in the library having E-mail facility, internet facility.

Ø  CD Rom/Networking.    

The following international database in CD Rom were added to the Library 

l     Hort CD  (CAB International) 1973-1988 U.K

l     Hort CD  (CAB International) 1989-2002  U.K
