The AILLMIS- All India Libraries and Librarians Management Information System is the India's First Online Gateway to Libraries and LIS professions in India. The AILLMIS is a byproduct of a research sponsored by University Grants Commission (UGC) as a Major Research Project under investigation of Dr. KP Singh, University of Delhi. The mission of the project is to interlink and integrate all the libraries and library professionals from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Ketch to remote place of north east states and creating a vibrant virtual network of libraries and librarians in India in order to pool the information infrastructures available in the different stakeholders of each focus areas of libraries (public, colleges, universities, agriculture, law, media, medical and R&D organizations (CSIR, DRDO, ICAR, ICMR, ISRO, IITs, IIMs, NITs, IIITs, IISER, ICFRI, ICSSR, BSI, ASI, ZSI, FSI, DBT, DST, etc.).

Libraries are significantly recognized an integral part of learning, education, training and research. The role becomes even more critical in today’s context, when the Government of India plan to invest a huge amount of money in order to improve the library collections, services, education and training. Report of the Working Group on Libraries, National Knowledge Commission (2005-2009) has strongly recommends there should have a ‘Census of Libraries in India’ for have a statistics on information infrastructure and services (IIS) available in Indian libraries in order to implement new initiatives and polices for strengthen the library and information services in country. Since many efforts has been undertaken by the LIS professional in the country to census the libraries, form time to time, but unfortunately, there is no single source today, where information on the Indian libraries can be sought. Through this ICT based -innovative initiative (ICT-II) an attempt has been made to develop a mechanism in participatory and collaborative model in order to create a national platform to find all sorts of information related to a particular library and LIS professionals by providing ‘Login based’ interface to mange their library profile from their work place.
