India: e-library mobile app sees exponential growth in downloads during COVID-19 lockdown

Karnataka government’s library mobile application has been growing as more people download it during the lockdown period

(11 Apr 2020)  Karnataka Library Department’s mobile application, which is said to be the first of its kind initiative in the country has seen an exponential growth in downloads during the COVID-19 lockdown, a senior Minister said on Friday.

Students are relying on online material for their studies as they can’t step out of the house and risk being infected.
