Abstract : One of the major problems in accessing information from internet is that it is very difficult and time consuming to get reliable and relevant information in the limited time. An effective and efficient way to provide easy access to quality information on internet is by developing subject gateways in specific areas. To meet the information requirement of the scientific and academic community in the digital era, various departments have developed Subject Gateways in their respective areas and some are in developing process. This paper suggests a proposal for developing Himalayan Information Subject Gateway for scientists and researchers engaged in Himalayan Studies. This paper also gives an overview of some the subject information gateways.
