The National Library, India is the largest library in the country. It is an institution of national importance under the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. The library is designated to collect, disseminate and preserve the printed material produced in the country. The library is situated on a scenic 30 acres Belvedere Estate, in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta). Aims of the National Library, India 1. Acquisition and conservation of all significant national production of printed material, excluding ephemera. 2. Collection of printed material concerning the country, no matter where it is published, and as a corollary, the acquisition of photographic records of such material that is not available with in the country 3. Acquisition and conservation of foreign material required by the country. 4. Rendering of bibliographical and documents services of current and retrospective material, both general and specialized. 5. Acting as a referral centre purveying full and accurate knowledge
Calcutta Public Library (CPL) Calcutta Public Library was established in 1836. It was not a Government institution. It ran on a proprietary basis. Any subscriber paying Rs 300 at one time or in three instalments was considered a proprietor. Poor students and others were allowed to use the library free of charge for a specified period of time. The then Governor General, Lord Metcalf transferred 4,675 volumes from the library of the College of Fort William to the Calcutta Public Library. These volumes and donations of books from individuals formed the nucleus of the library. Dwarkanath Tagore was the first proprietor of Calcutta Public Library. Both Indian and foreign books, especially from Britain, were purchased for the library. In the report of 1850 we find that the library has started collecting books in Gujarati, Marathi, Pali, Simhalese and Punjabi. Donations were regularly received from individuals and from the Government of Bengal and North Western Provinces. Calcutta Public Library had a unique position as the first public library in this part of the country. Such a tidy and efficiently run library was rare even in Europe during the first half of the nineteenth century. Thanks to the efforts of the proprietors of Calcutta Public Library, the National Library has many rare books and journals in its collection.
The Imperial Library . The Imperial Library was founded in 1891 by combining a number of Secretariat libraries. Of these, the most important and interesting was the library of the Home Department, which contained many books formerly belonging to the libraries of East India College, Fort William, and the East India Board in London. But the use of the library was restricted to the superior officers of the Government.
Amalgamation of CPL and Imperial Library Lord Curzon, Governor General of India in the early years of the twentieth century, is usually credited with the idea of opening a library in Kolkata for public use. He found that the Imperial Library and Calcutta Public Library were not being used as expected because of limited access and lack of amenities. He decided to merge the collection of Calcutta Public Library with that of the Imperial Library, subject to certain terms. The new library, called Imperial Library, was formally opened to the public on 30 January 1903 at Metcalf Hall, Kolkata. The aims and objectives of the Imperial Library were well defined in a Notification in the Gazette of India: ‘It is intended that it should be a library of reference, a working place for students and a repository of material for the future historians of India, in which, so far as possible, every work written about India, at any time, can be seen and read.’ John Macfarlane, Assistant Librarian of the British Museum, London, was appointed the first Librarian of the Imperial Library. After his death, the polyglot scholar Harinath De took over the charge of the library. J. A. Chapman succeeded him in 1911. During Chapman’s term, the library experienced remarkable growth and improvement. After his retirement, Khan Bahadur M.A. Asadulla was appointed librarian and he continued in office till July 1947.
From the Imperial Library to theNational Library After Independence the Government of India changed the name of the Imperial Library to the National Library, with the enactment of the Imperial Library (Change of Name) Act, 1948, and the collection was shifted from the Esplanade to the present Belvedere Estate. On 1 February 1953, the National Library was opened to the public, inaugurated by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. B. S. Kesavan was appointed the first Librarian of the National Library.

Special Library- The special libraries serve as information center for special type of the users , the information requirements of users are of specialized nature. Eg- 1.Libraries for blind,children or hospital paitents. 2.Library of Film,Video Cassettes or Manuscripts 3.Libray of IIT 4.Libray of Indian Inst. Of Forest Management, Bhopal 5.Library of Indian inst. Of Petrolium,Deharadun.
Special Library: The libraries that are run by private businesses and public organizations, including hospitals, museums, research laboratories, law firms, and many government departments and agencies, fall into this category. Branches of a large academic or research libraries dealing with particular subjects are also usually called "special libraries": they are generally associated with one or more academic departments. a) Definition: The special library is concerned with the literature of a particular subject or group of subjects. According to R. Astall, “special libraries serve a specialist clientele, located within a single establishment or group, and all engaged in working towards one common purpose”. The Association of Special Libraries and Information Bureau (ASLIB) defined special library as “a department/ faculty responsible for the acquisition, indexing, and distribution (dissemination) of recorded knowledge directly concerned with the work of a specialized organization or a special group of users”. In simple, a special library exists as a service unit within an organization having non-library objectives. Special libraries may be designated in different ways such as scientific library, technical library, etc. It may also be designated by subject as agriculture library, medical library, etc in relation to its parent institution as research organization, government agency and similar others.
Objectives: The objectives of the special library in general are determined by those of the parent organizations which established it. Mainly it is “putting knowledge to work” and it exists to serve its parent organization. Therefore the aim of a special library is to further the interests of its parent body by means of the following- i) Provides information service, which enable the members of the organization to keep track of the significant developments in their field of interest; ii) The librarian searches literature exhaustively and brings it to the notice of the organization; iii) Provides information pin pointedly, exhaustively and promptly, thereby saving time of the users; iv) Provides inspiration and stimulation to users by means of balanced collections and fine services.
Digital Libraries-Concept :- Digital Library services are fully automated and all resources are in digital form. Digital libraries are electronic libraries in which large number of geographical distributed user can access of electronic object. The digital information collections may include digital books, digital scanned images, graphics, textual and numeric data, designed films ,audio, and video clips, etc. a digital library is expected to provide access to the digital information collections.
Factors responsible for emergence ofdigital library - 1.Computer literate user demand on digital form. 2.Library budget is not more to provide hard copy journals titles. 3.any time available 4.every where available Multi use and multi task available
Functions of Digital library - Provide access to very large information collection. Support multimedia content Network accessible Provide user-friendly interface. Use in hypertext and hypermedia Support advanced search and retrieval Information is available for very long time.

Role of UGC in the growth and development of libraries and information centres ininstitutions of higher education in India In India the UGC was established in December 1953 and was made a statutorybody in November 1956 by an Act of the Parliament to maintain the standard of higher education in India. The UGC has been functioning as an autonomous advisory organization since its inception. It has much wider functions to perform than its literal meaning suggests i.e. disbursing of grants to universities
Review Committee on LibraryScience (1961) On the recommendation of the UGC Library Committee of 1957, a Review Committee on Library Science was appointed in 1961 under the Chairmanship of Dr.S.R.Ranganathan.

The Library Committee (1957) After the establishment of the UGC by the Act of Parliament in 1956, Dr. C.D.Deshmukh, its first Chairman, while drawing an analogy between a university and the human body, remarked that the students form the body of the university, the administration is the head, the teachers are the soul and the library is the heart.
Education Commission (1964-66) In spite of the liberal grants given to the universities by UGC for the development of libraries, following the recommendations of Radhakrishnan Commission, the condition of the university libraries was far from satisfactory. The universities did not allocate enough funds for the development of their libraries and library services. In July 1964, the Government of India appointed Education Commission under the Chairmanship of Prof.D.S.Kothari to evaluate the education system as well as the libraries. This Commission is known as Kothari Commission (1964-66). The Commission stated in the final report.

The Working Group suggested developing a computer network interlinking all special libraries in India by 2000 A.D.
Curriculum Development Committee onLibrary and Information Science (1990-93) In September 1990, the Curriculum Development Committee (CDC) on Library and Information Science (LIS) was on stituted on the recommendation of the UGC Panel on Library and Information Science to modernize the curriculum of LIS courses. The members of the Committee were Prof P.N.Kaula, Prof. S.G.Mahajan, Prof.(Ms.)A.K.Anand, Dr.P.K.Mahapatra, Dr.I.K.Ravi Chandra Rao, Prof. & Head, Department of Library Science of Aligarh Muslim University or his representative, and Dr.O.P.Gupta of the UGC.
Rastogi Committee (1997- 1998)The UGC appointed a Committee in 1997 under the Chairmanship of Prof.R.P.Rastogi to consider the revision of pay scales and career advancement of the academic staff of the universities and colleges. On the recommendations of the Rastogi Committee, the Ministry of Human Resource Development announced the revised pay scales of the teachers, librarians and physical instructors vide its letter No. 1-22/97-U.1 dated July 27, 1998. The Ministry issued subsequent clarifications vide its notification No. 1-22/97-U.1 dated March 24, 1999 while retaining parity of pay scales of librarians with teachers, it withdrew the parity in terms of career advancement, re-employment or extension of service and fixation of pay scales
Curriculum Development Committee (1997-2001) The UGC constituted Subject Panels in different disciplines, including for Library and Information Science (LIS) courses vide its letter No. F.2-13/97 dated April 2, 1997 with Prof.C.R.Karisidappa as its convener to formulate model curriculum and prepare the status report with modifications of existing guidelines where necessary.
