Digitisation of books to start soon in Kashmir
Srinagar: In a bid to upgrade Jammu and
Kashmir libraries, University of Kashmir will soon start
digitising eight million pages of various books.
"In the first phase, eight million pages from books in
various libraries of Jammu and Kashmir will be digitised," an
official of the University said.
He said old and rare books which are in private
possession will also be digitised.
"The valuable rare books available in private
collection shall also be digitised under this project and put
on internet," he said.
The digitisation project will be financed by the Union
government`s Department of Information Technology.
"Digitisation of books will enable users to browse
and read them even at their homes and one copy of the book
can be simultaneously browsed by multiple users," the official
University librarian Riyaz Rufai, who is the Chief
Coordinator of the project, said the digitised books will form
a part of the National Digital Library and will be accessible
throughout the world on the website.
"This prestigious project shall be completed within
two years," he said.
