Abstract : In the modern digital information environment, a well-defined mechanism is needed to organise, store, and access information. A library portal is highly beneficial for this as well as for web-enabled information services. Most of the libraries are adding e-resources to their collection. The utility of these e-resources will be limited in the absence of a functional website that facilitates the users to exploit these to the maximum extent. Web portals are the tools that enhance access to the e-resources by providing visibility to these. This paper highlights the role of a library portal for various user services. An attempt has been made to explain the portal of Technical Information Resource Centre of Naval Physical and Oceanographic Laboratory of Defene Research and Development Organisation and the services provided through this portal.
