Libraries have been the cornerstone of information for eternities
The conventional libraries house resources of information on varied topics in the form of books, journals, research papers, encyclopedias, DVDs, etc. It offers its members a quiet place to study or borrow resources from. Libraries are not just limited to academic institutions but can also be owned and maintained by the government, an organization, or an individual.
However, the conventional library has certain limitations that create the requirement for an alternative solution. some of the limitations are the round-the-clock availability to its users due to time restrictions, the limit to the physical space that can house the resources, the task of retrieving and placing a resource back in the same location, the limit to the number of copies of a resource, and many more.
A Digital Library helps to overcome these challenges and provide a better and more modern experience to the users. It is an electronic archive of the information resources, stored in an organized manner and made accessible easily and rapidly.
