Virtual Library


National 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.
