English abstract

Mahatma Gandhi University central library has established an SSH-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) to share information resources with libraries located outside the campus. Off-Campus libraries of Mahatma Gandhi University are extensively using by faculty members and research scholars from affiliated colleges. An SSH protocol based encrypted communication tunnel is the main component of VPN service. Open Source software and standards have adopted to reduce total cost ownership of the system. Mahatma Gandhi University Library VPN service ensures seamless access to online resources to the academic community away from the main campus through Off-Campus libraries.
