|Abstract||Libraries generate, accumulate, and disseminate information to its readers and users in the desired format and at the desired location. The process of using library data more effectively begins by discovering ways to connect the sources of data created by Libraries. The concept of data warehousing and data mining can assist library management in making decisions and setting policies, and can assist the library’s parent organization or community in understanding the information needs of its members. Data mining is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information. Data mining provides knowledge by uncovering valuable information that can be used for various purposes in different areas of applications. Using various techniques of data mining such as association rules, decision trees, and cross tabulation can help discover this unused information. The scope of this paper is to discuss the role and importance of data warehousing and data mining in making the libraries of the future. This paper first discusses the concept of data warehousing, its characteristics, and its uses. Further, the paper also discusses the concept of data mining and its use in library and information services.|

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
