NDLI PROJECT WEBSITE

Regional Centres are intended to facilitate integration of learning contents created in educational, research, cultural and heritage institutions located across the states and union territories of India with NDLI. Regional Centres promote usage of NDLI among all types of user communities in their respective regions.

A regional centre has the following responsibilities:

  • Conduct NDLI IDR Workshops for a group of Institutes in the region
  • Provide support and assistance to Institutes in the region to set up IDR as per NDLI metadata schema, to create/curate metadata as per NDLI schema and norms, to carry out Quality Assurance (QA) checks of the metadata prior to ingestion, ingest contents in the IDR and make the IDR harvestable by NDLI
  • Sensitize Institutes who are unable to set up an IDR due to budget or IT manpower constraints about the availability of the NDLI IDR Service so that they may make their IDR operational using this service
  • Create/curate metadata of all books, question papers, solutions etc. published by School Boards of the region (for all languages in which contents are published by the Boards) and ingest these in an IDR Service set up for collating content with metadata by NDLI
  • Assist NDLI in development of User Interfaces (UI) in local languages of the region by translating UI vocabularies in local languages
  • Conduct User Workshops for Users from various communities of the region
  • Sensitize various user communities of the region about NDLI and facilitate/popularize use of NDLI
