|Abstract||The idea of converting library materials into digital format for creating digital collections has advanced rapidly in the last few years, thus leading to the concept of a digital library. A digital library is a library that contains materials in digitized form or access to internal or external digital resources. Digital information resources include not only rapidly growing collection of electronic full text resources, but also images, video, sound, and even objects of virtual reality. The most important component of a digital library is digital collection it holds or has access to. A digital library can have a wide range of resources. A digital library is not a single entity although it may have digital contents created in-hourse or acquired in digital formats stored locally on servers. A digital library may also act a portal site providing access to digital collections held elsewhere. The digital imaging technology offers a number of choices that can be adopted to translate from print to digital. Digital conversion process includes Document, Data Capture, Data Processing, Storage, Indexing and retrieval. Dublin Core standard is adopted internationally to create Meta data of digital resources. The advent of the Internet acted as catalyst for Digital Library initiatives. Digital library environment is the context of rapidly charging computer and communication technology. This paper explains digitization methods, process of digitization and tools required for digitization.|

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.
