National Digital Library of India

The Ministry of Education has launched the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) as part of the National Mission of Education through Information and Communication Technology. The NDLI project is a virtual repository of learning resources with single-window search capabilities. The same is developed and maintained by Kharagpur of IIT.

The NDLI project started in 2015 and was launched domestically on June 19, 2018. It is a repository of national and international digital library resources, also accessible in English and Indian languages. Several filter options provide the ability to filter the database.

Books are available in India. Since books are scanned, there is an opportunity to develop Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software for the Indian language.

The aim is to collect and merge metadata and provide full-text indexing from various national and international digital libraries and other relevant sources. It’s a digital repository for articles, textbooks, audiobooks, videos, lectures, fiction, simulations, and all other types of learning media.

·   Materials are available for all levels of learning, from elementary school to graduation.

·   NDLI’s ease of use makes it suitable for all learners: students, teachers, researchers, librarians, professionals, people with disabilities, and all lifelong learners.

·   The information you want can be filtered according to various criteria such as education level, language, difficulty level, content media, and other factors.
