Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi TERI 2004Description: xxiv, 517 p; xv, 522 p. - 1098 p.ISBN: 8179930297.Subject(s): Digital libraries | Information storage and retrieval systems | Knowledge managementDDC classification: 025.085 Summary: Digital library in a broader context is nothing but a database.The objective of the digitization process should be ‘empowerment of people’. The Indian IT (information technology) industry has done remarkably well globally in recent years. But, its orientation towards export has given the industry a negative image within the country.There are technologies available, but use of the appropriate ones, not necessarily high-end ones, is the key. While conceptualizing any digitization project, it is important to have some measurement criteria for outputs as well as outcomes. Outputs should be in terms of number of documents digitized; outcomes should be in terms of ease of accessibility, the spread or the reach, and the ability to access information and knowledge. Both qualitative and quantitative goals should be incorporated into the project.
