A digital object identifier (DOI) is a serial code used to uniquely identify objects. The DOI system is particularly used for electronic documents such as journal articles. The DOI system began in 2000. Metadata about the object is stored in association with the DOI name. It may include a location, such as a URL, where the object can be found. Digital Online and Virtual Libraries are the storehouse of knowledge as they maintain the journals, published articles, book and other knowledge resources available. However, with the advent of digital technology and Internet connectivity, the library scenario is changing fast. Digital technology, Internet connectivity and physical content can be dovetailed resulting in Digital Library. Data available in physical form has been preserved digitally in Digital Library. Digital Libraries have the ability to enhance access to information and knowledge. They also Bridge barriers of time and space. In the past initiatives have been taken by different Ministries / Departments / organizations for digitizing and preserving data available in physical form. However, this activity has been restricted mostly in the area of the work / interest of the organization. Digital online Organization (doi) basically is a data base system and essentially which deals with digital and virtual Library.
Digital Library is a storehouse of Indexed Articles, Indexed Journals, Indexed Books, Indexed Libraries, and Other Indexing Objectsand it is nothing but a cross reference system in which Digital online Organization provide a doi no. for a particular object or article. The Digital Library is helping to develop an international strategy to collect, archive and preserve the burgeoning amounts of digital contents like journals, articles, books, conference proceedings for current and future generations.
Virtual Library is basically storehouse of Lab Manual in various field and developed to collect, archive and preserve the burgeoning amounts of digital contents like Virtual Books, Virtual Animal Lab and Virtual Experimental Lab. It is used for providing the Digital Collections & Services, Web Capture and Archiving, Custodian Videos and for accessing to print, pictorial and audio-visual collections and other digital services like Virtual Books, Virtual Animal Lab and Virtual Experimental Lab. The Library’s commitment to providing digital access to materials of historical importance extends to content that exists only in digital form, including web sites. Custodian Videos is a video recording of an expert speaking about an item or collection of items on the DOI.

We have become a primary source for current scientific news, webinars, virtual conferences and more. Join for free and become part of the largest scientific learning community in the world.
Mission Statement: The DOI is dedicated to the production, maintenance, delivery, and preservation of a wide range of high-quality networked information resources for scholars and students at anywhere. The program supports efforts to provide open access to electronic information resources to the international community and beyond.
Purpose of doi: The Digital Library produces, maintains, delivers, and preserves networked resources for scholars and students at anywhere in order to improve the teaching and research of faculty, improve the learning and research of students, and increase knowledge about the development of digital libraries.
The overarching benefit for the students, faculty, and staff will be access to an ever-widening range of digital library resources and services, including full-text online databases, faculty research, classroom materials, multimedia digital resources, electronic journals, and digital libraries from all over the world.
The DOI includes two sub-units, the Digital Library (DL) composed with list of journals, books, conference proceedings, articles and various objects with a digital no. and the Electronic Text, image, video Library called as Virtual Library (VL), that provide consultation and digitization services. The VL digitizes a variety of image, documents, audio, and video formats to support DOI projects.
