State To Set Up Digital Libraries In Each District


Kolkata: The work for setting up digital libraries in each district will start from November this year. The officers from the state library department are working hard to start the project in time.

The digital library is an upcoming trend, as it reduces space crunch. It is actually the collection of documents in organised electronic form, available on the Internet or on CD-ROMs (compact-disk read-only memory) disks. Depending on the specific library, a user is able to access magazine articles, books, papers, images, sound files, and videos.

The department is also taking several steps to revamp the State Central Library. A vision document of the Mass Education Extension and Library department were made by the department.
