English abstract

The technological advances today make it possible to think in terms of storing all the knowledge of the human race in digital form and several organizations worldwide are experimenting with less-expensive ways to create Institutional Repositories. For long-term preservation of our knowledge base and cultures, we have to find out an economical way to save digital content for future generations. INFLIBNET (Information and Library Network Centre) decided to opt DSpace for its Institutional Repository and archive its publications, conference proceedings, lecture notes etc. D-Space, jointly designed by MIT and HP, is a groundbreaking digital library system that captures, stores, indexes, preserves and redistributes the intellectual output of a university’s research faculty in digital formats. This paper narrates the practical experiences and provide an overview of INFLIBNET’s institutional repository and dArchive-India developed for Indian academic and research community to archive their intellectual work.
