Digitizing of rare books, including pre-Independence newspapers, journals and other documents housed in public libraries will be taken up and a Digital Repository will be created for providing access to all stakeholders to digitized documents. Selected copyright-free materials, including paintings, photographs, manuscripts etc., available in public libraries will also be digitized and will be made available to the public. This National Digital Repository will be progressively developed to contain metadata of all rare materials available in public libraries in India as well as the Digital version of the copyright-free Works as part of National Digital Preservation Programme. This Digital Repository will also host contents on Libraries, Library System & Services and Library Development in India.


For this purpose CDAC has already been entrusted to digitize the collection of Rabindra Bhavan, Visva-Bharati. CDAC has already digitized 8896 Journals / Books at Rabindra Bhavan as on 30th June, 2013. NIC authority has been approached for hosting of the Digital Library Portal.
