The National Digital Library of India (NDLI: https://www.ndl.gov.in/) is an
integration platform for schools, colleges, universities, teachers,
students, lecturers, differentially abled pupils and anybody who has a
willingness to learn. We hope to facilitate e-learning for students everywhere with the help of technologically enhanced learning design and the support of Digital India. Over the past two years, NDLI has traversed the length and breadth of the country to educate, enable and empower schools, colleges, public libraries and various other institutions in every state with the necessary infrastructure to digitize as well as access and browse the library whilst parallely generating a whooping 2crore content base in 60+ formats from premier institutions as well as collections across the world.
The library today contains e-books, videos, audio-books, tutorials,
question-papers and most other formats that learners of all ages can access
anytime, and from anywhere. This online library is building up to become a
treasure-trove of India's literature, research, culture and well as
knowledge repositories in almost all subjects and across the entire
proficiency spectrum. To this end, NDLI is actively seeking to digitize India's knowledge heritage
across multiple sectors to make it available to the world.
The Kolkata Book Fair being an amalgamation of readers, learners, publishers and knowledge
enthusiasts was hence a perfect fit with the NDLI mission. We hope to reach
out to publishers with our digitization efforts and readers of all ages with
our treasury of content to come together and create a beautiful, symbiotic,
immersive environment where everyone involved can learn, share and grow. The association with The Science & Heritage initiative of IIT Kharagpur is an effort to jointly present the outreach and dissemination activity and the effort shall definitely go a long way create sustained, meaningful and deep impacts on the society as a whole.
