Electronic Resources

To keep its readers abreast with the latest developments in Engineering & Technology, the library provide access to over 2300 e-journals, conference proceedings, standards and other resources. PEC library started e-journal service in 2004, with the help of INDEST consortium. At that time PEC library was providing access to more than 200 e-resources of three publishers: ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) and IEL (IEEE/IET Electronic Library) under the category of complimentary access for AICTE-sponsored institutions. In the year 2009, PEC library also attained membership of UGC-Infonet Consortium (Inflibnet Centre) as the  demand for electronic resources increased.
