Development of Digital Libraries in India: a Survey of Digital Collection of National Digital Library of India
Digital preservation is ensuring the long term maintenance of a byte stream sufficient to reproduce the document and provide continued accessibility of the contents over time and through evolving computer technology. Digital Library of India (DLI) is a digital collection of freely accessible rare books and manuscripts collected from various libraries in India of different states. DLI presently is providing access to 550583 digital rare books to users throughout the World through web. But thousands of rare books and manuscripts are still there in Indian libraries without digitization. DLI needs to reach every nook and corner of India to achieve its goal of maximum digitization of Indian heritage and historical record.
