|Abstract||The Internet has changed how we conduct and share research,primarily by increasing the global reach of scholarly communication.Today the world of information is divided between two views on costsand business. One group believes that content should be freelyaccessible for the development of further knowledge. The other groupbelieves that content should be maintained by market value for qualityproducts and incentives to the intellectual content.Open Access (OA) has come from the growing interest of researchers inexperimenting with innovative mechanisms to disseminate theirresearch findings. However OA is still far behind what it should be inthe country like India. At least the scientific community is still in adilemma to embrace OA. This is what we find in our survey ofresearcher's attitude towards OA. There are many reasons ranging fromlack of awareness, myths about OA and biasness towards traditionalpublishing model for prestige & recognition.We approached scientists of different research institutes and universitiesaround Kolkata with different age groups in different ways. Interestingresults have come out which clearly identified the major hurdles toadopt OA by scientific community in India.Keywords: Open Access, Scholarly Publications, Journal Publisher,Citation and Impact Factor, Research Impact, Open Access Initiative,Institutional Repositories and Usability Study.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
