The trend of digital repositories, union catalogues, digital platform for collaborative networking and resource sharing has become increasing important and more relevant today among Indian agricultural libraries. Libraries are exploring new ways to fulfill the information requirement of their patrons through resource sharing and document delivery using the online platform accessible everywhere.

CeRA the (Consortium for e-Resources in Agriculture) provides a platform for online access to e-journals and inter Library Loan. DDR Services has been established to share resources subscribed by individual libraries as well as consortium journals using the web portal of CeRA. The article also presents an interesting case study of the use of DDR services by patrons of the first Indian Agricultural University that played a vital role in bringing a green revolution in the country.
