The purpose of this Mini-Symposium is to bring together curators/librarians/ other interested people for a discussion on the importance of digitization (in addition to traditional long-term stage e.g. paper) in terms of access and searchability, by Carl Malamud. The Academy’s efforts at digitization of back issues of all its journals (back to 1934 and 1910 for J Genetics) will be discussed and the archive inaugurated. A Kannada translation (ebook) of the book ‘C V Raman Memoir’ by Jayaraman will also be released. The Academy is also collaborating with Malamud in projects to digitize and make available science-related resources from India, in addition to specifically digitizing publications (incl 50+ books) published by the Academy.
