Abstract: Indian University Libraries are constantly grappling with the issue of cost inflation of library resources (cost of library materials have out spaced cost of living) coupled with resource explosion. Some alternate solutions may have emerged in form of rationalization of periodicals, resource sharing, site licences and now consortia. Importances of these concerns have been clearly defined in the main objectives of the INFLIBNET. However, the fundamental problem remains. The paper highlights how by using the Internet / Intranet revolution, this problem can be minimized. The focus of the paper is on developing Institutional Repositories - one of the prime issues that is of utmost importance keeping in view multifaceted factors (information explosion; cost inflation and ICT) that have had immense impact on the existing research cycle. The issues concerning public / open access to scholarly articles in form of Institutional Repositories (IR) are also discussed here in this paper.
