Abstract: PAM (Physics, AstrophysIcs and Mathematics) is one of the divisions of SLA (Special Libraries Association) which facilitates communication among Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics Information professionals in many ways, from providing the PAM net listserv to organising meetings. PAM·APF is an extension to PAM, which includes the members from countries of the Asia·Pacific Region mainly. Library community always feels the urge to share their resources nationally and internationally. PAM·APF is a tool, which facilitates this sharing experience, and with the advent of Internet and Web technology. development of network has become easier. Though resource sharing is in an advanced stage, the concept of "Consortium" is still nascent in our country. PAM·APF can be a launching pad for this consortium concept in the immediate future. Not only does network become more active and live, but also the participants benefit economically from consortium formation.
