Electronic Resources consist of contents that are stored and displayed digitally and accessed through computers and other electronic devices. These resources are mostly referred to as online/offline databases, digital content or media. The main aim to procure electronic resources is to facilitate their access to users regardless of physical location and time.
Nirma University Libraries procure a variety of electronic resources like, online journals, online databases, offline databases, e-books, CDs, DVDs, VCDs, etc. Some electronic resources are accessible only within the campus and some are off-campus through remote login facility.
Nirma University Libraries subscribe many online journals on different subjects. The user can access all online journals 24×7 within and off-campus (through remote access).

NPTEL stands for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning. This is an initiative by seven Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and sciences. Contents for these video courses are based on the model curriculum suggested by AICTE and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities of India.
The main objective of NPTEL program is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by developing curriculum based video and web courses. This is being carried out by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore as a collaborative project. Five major engineering disciplines have been covered in this project so far at the undergraduate (B.E./B.Tech) level. In addition, a number of core curriculum courses common to all engineering programmes such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, management, electronics, language etc. have also been included.
800 Video courses and 300 Web courses available for access. Students and Faculty members of the Nirma University can watch these video courses within the campus to enhance their subject knowledge.
