National Mission on Libraries

The creation of a National Virtual Library of India (NVLI) is one of the major component schemes of the National Mission on Libraries.

With the aim of equitable and universal access to knowledge resources, the National Virtual Library of India would provide digital resources by digitizing the relevant reading material in different languages, which would be shared at all levels.

The target users of NVLI will not only be students, researchers, doctors and professionals but also the educationally, socially, economically and physically disadvantaged groups. Thus, it would empower people with information in order to create a knowledge society and also ensure preservation of digital content for posterity.


This initiative of National Mission on Libraries will largely facilitate the internet savvy people in making maximum use of library resources.
