National education policy 2020: Implementation in digital library era for higher education institutions


Mamta Rathore*

A digital library can be maintained by a person or an organization and can vary greatly in size and scope. It is possible to access the digital content locally or remotely across a computer network. Every college or university should have a library since it serves as the centre of teaching, learning, and research activities and gives students, researchers, and teacher’s access to a wealth of knowledge. In traditional libraries, users must spend more time searching for a single piece of information and must rely heavily on the LIS (Library and Information Science) specialist or library personnel for assistance. However, in the age of information and communication technology, computers and the internet are utilized for routine library maintenance, saving the time of the patrons. The national education policy 2020 aimed to highlight libraries as crucial components of the educational system in India's schools, colleges, and universities. The NEP envisions an education system focused on India that directly aids in the country's sustainable transformation into an equitable and thriving knowledge society by offering top-notch services to all. The research aims to the new policy also includes ICT for online and digital library in HEIs.
