Online database searches have become common and a number of American and European databases have become very popular due to their specification in specialization in specific fields, notably those related to science and engineering. Although the telecommunication charges are relatively low, the specific databases charges are substantial, depending upon the specific area of specification. This paper discusses the access and search of global databases, value-addition through organisation of the received data and sharing of the organised data with local area network. The original organised database when accessed and downloaded becomes an ASCII file. If the selected database is to be reconstructed at the receiving end, it is a laborious task of manual data entry which could be very slow and error-prone. A program developed for automated conversion of the ASCII file into a standard database format is described. A cost-effective system for sharing the above organised data within the city and across the country using the existing and coming networks is proposed.
