The author reflects on the need for science and technology (S&T) communities to create an updated serials catalogue for the National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources (NISCAIR). The author states that NISCAIR must receive catalogues to maintain the update for the web-based National Union Catalogue of Scientific Serials in India (NUCSSI). The author also claims that a constantly updated NUCSSI equates to a better throughput for the Document Supply Service (DSS).
