Medical Library Consortium (Nine Govt. Medical College members only)
The Tamilnadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University being
the mother Medical University holds the responsibility to initiate
requisite action to establish a Virtual Library for the benefit of
its user community. The Tamilnadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University
has already received adequate funds from the State
and Central Governments plus its own funds to initiate this
project. On approval of this proposal by the Committee, the
Medical Informatics Centre was upgraded as a Digital Library in 2002
and later as Virtual Library in 2005.
Virtual Library facilitates access to valuable and varied Medical Databases,
Research papers & thesis abstract and Invention /developments/updates
in the relevant fields. An equal access has been extended to both rural
& urban community. An user can search, view, save and print any
piece of data/information at an affordable cost. This has also enabled
to reduce the physical space taken up by library materials.
Currently access to this Virtual Library is opened to all
via its University website-
www.tnmmu.ac.in. A separate web
site exclusive for this Virtual Library is under progress.
