|Abstract||Indian libraries have witnessed a transformation during the past two decades. The paradigm shift has been driven by Information Technology enabled services and machine learning. New services have been introduced in the area of remote access, 24x7 access, use of Web 2.0 for interaction and feedback and all these make the library use more convenient and enriching. Many new products like digitized documents, pictures and audio-visual documents have been made available during the past few years. One of the most important changes has been in the area of library marketing for which the Web 2.0 serves as a vital tool. Services such as SDI have been made more efficient now with tools like RSS, Atom and through email alerts. This paper presents a study of 71 library web sites which showcase the varieties of services the libraries are rendering now. The libraries represented in the study are public, academic, special, circulating and children’s libraries. The paper includes recommendations for further improvement of library services.|

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.
