Digitization is an important aspect of developing digital libraries as it opens up new avenues of access, use, research and preservation of valued information resources. The Gandhi Smriti Library of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussoorie, has taken up the digitization of non-copyright rare and fragile documents for the Digital Library of India (DLI) project, which is being realized by C-DAC, Noida. The library is also planning to develop its own scanning facilities for digitizing the institutionally produced literature. This paper makes an attempt to describe the digitization initiatives and highlights the challenges and policy plans for developing a digital library at the Institute.

Abstract


Digitization is an important aspect of developing digital libraries as it opens up new avenues of access, use, research and preservation of valued information resources. The Gandhi Smriti Library of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussoorie, has taken up the digitization of non-copyright rare and fragile documents for the Digital Library of India (DLI) project, which is being realized by C-DAC, Noida. The library is also planning to develop its own scanning facilities for digitizing the institutionally produced literature. This paper makes an attempt to describe the digitization initiatives and highlights the challenges and policy plans for developing a digital library at the Institute.
