(30 September 2015, Bhubaneswar) Manmohan Digital Library, the first digital library in the state of Odisha (formerly Orissa) with over 1.3 lakh (130,000) digitized pages of Odia literature, will be opened to the public in the Old Town here on Tuesday.
The library is being set up by voluntary organization Srujanika, which works on digitization of literary works, and Kedar Nath Gabesana Pratisthan, a socio-cultural association.
“The library will help scholars and researchers interested in Odia literary works dating back to 1856. This is probably the only library completely digitized in the state,” said Nikhil Mohan Patnaik of Srujanika.
The library will have digitized pages of over 75 Odia literary magazines and their editions and newspapers published between 1850 to 1950.
