The e-Shodhsindhu programme (formerly UGC-Infonet Digital Library Consortium) is a joint venture undertaken by the UGC and INFLIBNET Centre to promote electronic information resource sharing activity among major university libraries in the country. The Kuvempu University has signed MoU for UGC-Infonet Programme with UGC-INFLIBNET on 16-12-2002. This service was started with 128/256 Kbps Broadband VSAT physical internet connection established by ERNET-India, New Delhi then it was upgraded to 256 kbps. But during 2007-08 to make effective usage of e-resources the UGC upgraded the speed of internet from 256 kbps to 2 MB leased line. Further, it was upgraded to 1 Gbps leased line under NMEICT/NKN programme during 2010-11. The Electronic resource distribution is being made by INFLIBNET Centre to the Universities under consortia scheme.
Under the program the University Library is providing e-journals service to its users through different approach viz., Alphabetic-wise, Subject-wise and Publisher-wise.
