Get set for an International Conference on Digital Libraries

MUMBAI: Wouldn’t it be really good if all the knowledge from across the world can be accessed from one place? That is what a recent initiative by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) aims to do. TERI is organising the International Conference on Digital Libraries (ICDL) from 27-29 November 2013 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
