Reducing duplication of works across library platforms is a highly discussed subject. Bringing together different bibliographic records of various types of documents (books, journals, theses and other types of materials) that are situated in particular libraries of UGC funded institutions would largely help in avoiding duplication efforts. In India, there are handful of such initiatives are taking place to make information services as centralized on a common platform and several similar activities are under work in progress.
