|Abstract||Metadata research drastically improved the resource discovery mechanism in accessing information from a large distributed environment. Even technological capabilities permit multiple metadata schemas for standardizing the structure and content of indexing information towards an efficient resource discovery. This paper presents the issues on standard metadata in order to pursue digital repositories and dynamic web pages. It proposes various means of harvesting metadata using optimum standards and protocols. It also enumerates inherent mechanisms for metadata harvesting in DSpace enabled repositories through various harvesting tools; and evaluates XML as current popular choice for metadata harvesting (OAI-PMH) and exchange. System support to multiple metadata formats in DSpace has been discussed thoroughly. Finally it recognizes interoperability and extensibility functions that are being realized increasingly towards a long-term management and preservation of digital objects. However the glimpses of metadata production tools (newer & developed) could accelerate the digital repository initiatives with an increasing popularity of open access movement in real world.|

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.
