|Abstract||The use of digital library in this era advances the speed of information access. In this regard the demand for the digitization of the paper based information into the digital format is evolving. Most of the time this requirements are fulfilled by developing digital library which are capable to hold and store a huge amount of digital data either separately or in archive. The present digital library system is facing the problem of incomplete/partial automation, resource sharing operation integration, interoperability due to heterogeneous data, information and knowledge for information discovery. Adding semantics to the digital library can alleviate the same. So, a proper Knowledge Management System based on Ontology is a key requirement. In this paper a conceptual framework is proposed for better Knowledge Management for the digital library using Ontologies. In addition to that this paper discusses about the necessity of constructing ontology based knowledge management in digital libraries using semantics.|

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.
