Digital Libraries in India: A Review

G. Mahesh / Rekha Mittal
Published Online: 2008-05-19 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/libr.2008.002

Recent years have seen several digital library development initiatives in India. To gain insight, assess and understand the growth, development and current status of digital library initiatives in India as reflected through scholarly journals, 63 published studies on digital libraries in India have been reviewed. The study reveals that most articles focus on developing digital libraries and digital collections except for a few studies on copyright issues and management of digital libraries. No studies have touched upon issues such as digital rights management, security and digital library policies.
