A study on Pakistan’s Digital Library

(9 January 2017) In Pakistan, the Digital Library Programme was introduced as a collaborative project of Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission (HEC) and INASP in 2003. Today, the Digital Library (DL) is a programme of the HEC and provides private and public sector institutions in Pakistan with access to international scholarly literature, such as academic journals and electronic-books (e-books), through online delivery. To date, INASP has provided a number of discounted subscriptions and this has saved Pakistan’s Digital Library and its member institutions up to £ 1.7 million per year.
