Abstract: Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO) provides various scientific information services to the user community through web using social networking technology. This paper highlights the concept, methodology, and need of social networking technology adapted by DESIDOC to some of the specialised services. Special focus has been given on DRDO Blog and DRDO Wiki. Paper also discusses the customisation and experience in using Wordpress software for DRDO Blog and creation of multi-lingual web pages to the multi-faceted library community. This software was tested for nearly three months before it was made available to the entire DRDO user community. In addition to Blog and Wiki, the paper also addresses the implementation of DRDO Institutional Repository. The paper concludes that using blogs and wikis is an effective way for library community to stay current and for libraries to disseminate information in a timely manner with presentation of updated content.
