Sponsored by the Indian Ministry of Education and developed by Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, National Digital Library of India is a public digital library that offers free and open access to over 55 million educational resources.

 

NDLI responded to the COVID crisis by launching two pioneering new services, ‘Study at Home’ and the ‘COVID-19 Research Repository’. These helped minimize disruptions to learning during the pandemic. NDLI is powered by a unique process for digitally acquiring and curating the metadata of educational contents. It also runs a vigorous online advocacy programme to mobilize learners and influencers across India.
