A digital library is a collection of documents in an organized electronic form, available on the internet or electronic devices. Depending on the specific library, a user may be able to access magazine articles, books, papers, images, sound files, and videos.
The NDLI-UNESCO International Symposium on Knowledge Engineering for Digital Library Design 2019 in association with IIT Delhi is coming with its second series of knowledge-sharing events coordinated by the National Digital Library of India, scheduled on 9-11 December 2019 at Seminar Hall- IIT Delhi, India.
The primary objective of these series has been sharing of technical, policy, administration related knowledge about digital library design. The first symposium of this series was held in October 2017 with a central theme of collaboration among digital libraries around the world. More than 30 speakers of international repute have deliberated on different aspects of digital library design. Different deliberations and sessions converged to a crystalized thought: “Openness is the key to mutual growth and sustenance”. This very thought has naturally become the theme of the second version of the symposium: “Smart and Open Technologies for Digital Library”.
The NDLI-UNESCO International Symposium on Knowledge Engineering for Digital Library Design 2019 will focus on emerging technologies in a digital library, digital preservation; cultural heritage, human aspect in DL service design, satellite programs, user engagement and content strategy and modern information retrieval systems & knowledge engineering. To cover these topics more than 20 eminent speakers will be presenting their views and answering all the present questions.
The National Digital Library of India is a single-window platform that provides learning resources intending to make e-learning and education accessible to all and to bring to users of all demographics, digital repositories from India and the world. NDLI is a national mission on education through the Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) project developed by the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, aided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India.
NDLI-UNESCO International Symposium of on Knowledge Engineering for Digital Library Design 2019 is managed by CIMGlobal.
