Indian Institute of Science Assembling Large Digital Library

The Indian Institute of Science is creating a huge digital library. “The process of digitisation began six years ago. So far, the IISc has digitised 2,500 books and as many theses. Now, 10,000 bound volume journals and more than 5,500 titles are available online. … The library has more than 8,000 theses and at least two lakh books, according to Puttabasavaiah, deputy librarian at the IISc.” (A lakh is 100,000.)
