"The number and variety of information resources available in the Internet is growing turbulently. There is also growing evidence that users are increasingly relying on Internet based information for their day to day activity and they spend considerable time in finding such information but it is very hard to get the subject specific relevant resources from the whole mass of divergent resources available on the web. Information professionals are the major role players in information access, thus known as information mediators, it is highly imperative for them to develop an appropriate means for organizing and providing quick access to relevant web resources, thereby saving the time of the users. As a solution to this rising phenomena Subject gateways evolved as a popular tool and best means to access subject specific information sources without waste in time and need to search through various websites. The present work ""Planning and Designing of Subject Gateways"" has been designed with the highly acclaimed and most popular multi-platform, multimedia and multi lingual Open Source Digital Library Software i.e. GSDL. This is a maiden work of its kind which focuses on the basic frame work of how to plan, design and develop a subject gateway as a basic retrieval tool to subject specific information. Therefore could be of use both as an authoritative resource and practical tool for practicing librarians, students of Library & Information Science and also for the researchers in doing furtherance of their research in field of designing and developing information retrieval mechanisms."
