The paper looks into the need for developing full text digital archives and libraries with programmes that can process Indian vernacular languages. Use of local scripts becomes inevitable in the creation of Information systems for digitized palm leaves, manuscripts and other local documents. Also discusses about the importance of conceiving an alternate algorithm for digital archives that is capable of searching and retrieving individual pages rather than whole documents, which is the current fashion among international packages like GreenStone, DSpace, Eprint, etc. Traces out the historical development of the package 'Nitya Archives' which can be used to create multi lingual digital archives in Indian languages and describes in detail the major projects implemented using it.
