Sibal stresses on digitalisation of books

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal on Feb 23 stressed on digitalisation of books to help the reader access the material in a convenient manner and asked experts to evolve a policy to address the issues of copyright and creation of infrastructure for the purpose.

Inaugurating a three-day conference on 'Digital Libraries', he said that digitalisation of books will help a sizable section of readers get access to material. However, there is need for a policy to address the issue of standardisation and copyright, he said.

There should be a software to help the reader to access specific material in the digital world, Sibal said.
