National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built 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 designed 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 developed, operated and maintained from 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 Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.

The steps for creating CSV file are as follows:
Note: One csv file can contain upto 1000 records. If required, you can create multiple files.
For Institutional Registration of NDLI and to get the NDLI Institutional Registration No., the institute (School, College, Institute and University) needs to set up an NDLI-Club in the institute through the NDLI-Club portal (https://club.ndl.iitkgp.ac.in).
NDLI-Club is a platform for conducting learning-oriented events, both online (both local as well as involving many other institutes) and offline, for students of an institute using contents of NDLI (and others as well) and engaging experts (of the institute as well as external) to deliver talks or conduct sessions. Examples of online events are webinars by experts on specific topics or on examination preparation strategy. Examples of offline events are quiz sessions or debate competitions. The benefit is to facilitate learning among students through activities. Online events can be conducted through the NDLI-Club platform itself without need of any other service.
Once an institute gets registered in the NDLI-Club portal (https://club.ndl.iitkgp.ac.in) and makes its students members of the NDLI-Club, the institute gets a Registration No. which will be visible in the NDLI-Club portal (https://club.ndl.iitkgp.ac.in). And once the institute conducts events in its NDLI-Club, it gets Institutional Registration Certificate and students get Event Participation Certificate.
Please follow these steps for setting up NDLI-Club at your institute.
