Published Online: 2015-06-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/pdtc-2014-0021


Our day-to-day needs are greatly dependent on information and communications technology (ICT)—as represented by the Internet. Knowledge about culture is no exception. This paper focuses on the availability of digital cultural information about India on the Web. We aim to answer three questions: How is Indian culture represented on the Web? How are Indian cultural heritage sites being used? Who is using the sites? The study also examines the usability of these sites, and whether they are maintained. Content, ranking, and users’ age groups are the three criteria on which this analysis has been based.
