|Abstract||With the forging and making operational consortia subscription of E resources, beginning with journals, by various Academic and Government R and D organizations in the country, there is an immediate need to formulate standard metrics for the analysis of the usage of such resources. In the subsequent phase the outcomes of the analysis can be co-related against various parameters to develop performance measures as relevant to the consortium members. These performance measures can then be used to benchmark against the ‘leaders’ and action item for improving the average usage across the consortium. Ultimately translating into a justifiable ROI – not necessarily in money terms. Unlike in the physical subscription, such measurements and analysis is an intrinsic benefit in E subscription and must be fully utilized. This paper will generally discuss the utility of metrics , prevailing practices of a few E content providers and lay down broad parameters to serve as a basis for evolving a standard set of E metrics.|

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 9 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.
