The National Digital Library (NDL) project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development and executed by IIT Kharagpur, is up and running in its pilot form, the institute said in a statement on Wednesday. The NDL will bring under its fold 100 institutes and roll out a collection of one million digitised books and journals in the first phase, this year.  Contents from as many as 16 sources, including CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, CSIR-Central Glass & Ceramic Research Institute, and IIT Hyderabad, were added to the NDL portal last week. Among them are IIT-JEE Advanced questions and answers from 2007.  “The limited launch pilot portal was provided to IIT-Kharagpur students who then tested and submitted feedback to project committee,” according to the institute. The digital platform serves as a single-window search portal facilitating focused and quick searching for all, except copyrighted content, said Partha Pratim Das, professor at IIT-Kharagpur department of computer science and engineering and one of the core NDL team members. –  Courtesy
