It acts as one-point access to 4,000+ subscribed currently by all the IITs and IISc and available online. The service offers the following facilities and benefits to users.

Table of Contents Browsing: Users can select journals of their choice by searching by journal title words and/or subject categories and browse the table of contents for the latest is sues of the journals.

Database Searching: JCCC@INDEST acts a comprehensive database of journal articles published in the journals subscribed by all IITs and IISc (about 4,000). The articles are indexed with subject keywords and are searchable by – Author, Title words, abstract words, subject keywords, Institutional name or city to which the author belongs to.

MyTOC: Users can select journals of their choice and create their own alert profiles. JCCC@INDEST sends e-mail notice to the users, every week and as and when their favorite journals are published, to facilitate browsing TOC of the latest issues.

Full-text Online: J-Gate provides link to full-text for online journals of the publishers for which the INDEST consortium has obtained online rights for accessing or the individual library has separately obtained online access rights for journals.

If the journal is not subscribed by user’s library (say NIT, Surthkal) and is subscribe by another library (say IISc, Bangalore), an automated photocopy request goes to the library where the journal is available which is designated for supplying the article to the user. In this case, IISc, Bangalore sends a copy of the article to NIT, Surthkal.
