CSIR-CENTRAL is Centralized Institutional Repositories Hosting Service for CSIR Labs and a Harvester service for CSIR Institutional Repositories.

Individual OAI-PMH Compliant Institutional Repositories have been configured and customized on the central server for the each of CSIR labs which do not have Institutional Repositories in their own data centre.  All CSIR lab’s repositories are being regularly harvested by the central harvester. This value added service enables the research community to search and view the R & D literatures from different CSIR Institutes through a single console.

The csircentral.net is a main domain under which sub domains for each laboratory’s IR are created like ncl.csircentral.net, npl.csircentral.net etc. This serves the purpose of ‘One CSIR’.

The csircentral server is hosted and maintained by CSIR-Unit for Research and Development of Information Products, Pune.
