English abstract

Suggests that development of an information system on academic programmes offered by various higher education and research institutions in India can help the students to select apt courses, field of study and institution as well as enable universities and institutes to assess the need for the introduction of specific programme in particular localities. Proposes the establishment of a ‘Study in India' website as part of the system. Defines the objectives of the system. Compares the similar existing information sources in print media like World of Learning and Universities Handbook with the proposed database. Points out that they can not serve the purpose due to their delayed publication. The study recommends that websites and computerized databases on facilities for higher studies and research in India should be developed by INFLIBNET with the help of packages like BASISplus/TECHLIBplus and BASISwebserver. Suggests that UGC/INFLIBNET should prescribe standards for development of computerized prospectus by the universities and colleges which will enable pooling of the data.
