DIGITAL LIBRARY

Digital libraries are a set of electronic resources and associated technical capabilities for creating, searching, and using information . A digital library is a collection of documents in organized electronic form, available on the Internet or on CD-ROM (compact-disk read-only memory) disks. Depending on the specific library, a user may be able to access magazine articles, books, papers, images, sound files, and videos. Library users increasingly expect everything to be immediately available on the web, free of charge at each point of service and coupled with the assurance of permanent access.

Digital library is a very complex and dynamic entity. it has brought phenomenal change in the information collection, preservation and dissemination scene of the world.

A digital library encompasses two possibilities: a) library that contains material in digitized form, and b) library that contains digital material. There is a subtle difference between the two (though not of great significance). In first case, the digital content is produced by digitizing physical counterparts (e.g. paper). In the second case, the initial content itself is created in digital form.”

A digital library is the collection of services and the collection of information objects that support users in dealing with information objects and the organization and presentation of those objects available directly or indirectly via electronic/digital means.”
