Baldev Singh, Sumit Gangwar, Meenakshi Sharma, Manita Devi


A digital library is a combination of textual, numeric, scanned photos, graphics, audio, and video recordings that allows consumers to easily retrieve information from a digital collection. Recent advancements in computer store and processor, communication technologies, e-products, networking, and internet use have resulted in a radical shift in the way libraries and their services operate. Current study discusses a functioning collection of textbooks, documents, newspapers, and audiovisual resources stored and arranged in a library for anyone to read or borrow. Information and Communications Technology (ICT)has had a significant influence on libraries, and it has altered the traditional library idea in which print and paper materials are the primary components of the system. Libraries are transforming into digital libraries in order to fulfill the massive information explosion and rising demand for information.

In this work, we attempt to clarify the language used in these libraries in a professional manner. Such libraries will increase the efficiency of education in the coming eras.
