|Abstract||LIS schools today face a greater challenge in updating their curriculum to accommodate the new technological innovations, necessitated by the market demands. Web 2.0 applications have not only transformed the nature of scholarly communication but is constantly reshaping the ways in which users search, find, access and utilize the information with the help of tools facilitated by open source software and user friendly web programming languages including AJAX. This preliminary survey shows how well the latest technologies are getting embedded into daily library services for the benefit of users and the feasibility of their coverage in LIS curriculum, with reference to Mumbai libraries. Practicing librarians are struggling everyday to keep themselves up-to-date with new Web 2.0 resources and utilities, to implement the same in their personal and professional work domains and hence expect the fresh graduates to be skilled with requisite technical competency to meet the challenges of the growing market demands. As for the LIS schools, bridging the gap between traditional librarianship and modern technologies will forever be a challenging issue.|

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.
