Abstract The Libraries of 21st century have to be conceived not merely as the storehouse of knowledge but an effective mechanism to facilitate dissemination of knowledge, promoting information and knowledge sharing while, at the same time, supporting the growth of knowledge of intellectual property. The libraries of 21st century should facilitate the transition of today's literate society to a knowledge-based society of tomorrow. We have to create local area networks, national networks and also to link local and national network of Libraries and Information systems so as to facilitate global access of knowledge sharing. Networking, therefore, is one of the frontal areas of focus for the libraries of 21st century. The article describes the major activities of INFLIBNET with respect to academic and research libraries in the country.
