NEW DELHI: Every citizen of the country will have access to the contents of the National Electronic Library (NEL), HRD minister said.
NEL is a digitised library which according to the minister will be device independent.
"It can be accessed using a variety of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, smart phones and other devices," added Irani.
However, few of the resource contents will be especially subscribed to students, researchers and faculty of colleges.
Further, the resources available under the National Repository of Open Education Resources (NROER), launched in 2013, will also be part of e-library.
"NROER is a collaborative platform that endeavours to bring together relevant and appropriate digital digitizable resources in multiple languages for the school system for all classes and subjects," she said.
The resources available in NROER are in the form of concept maps, video, multimedia, learning objects, audio clips, talking books, photographs, diagrams and charts, articles, Wiki pages and textbooks.
