The digital age has brought about new ways of information storage and information and communication technology has brought the stored information closer to its seekers. This has changed user behaviour in accessing information. This paper attempts to introduce a model of building a consortium involving libraries, archives and museums in India so that users can find information at a click of their mouse or mobile phone.

Note: This paper was presented at ICLAM 2011: International Conference on the Convergence of Libraries, Archives and Museums, held in New Delhi, India, from 15–17 February 2011.
