A digital library is a library in which collections are stored in digital formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media) and accessible by computers.The digital content may be stored locally, or accessed remotely via computer networks. A digital library is a type of information retrieval system.
Academic libraries are actively involved in building institutional repositories of the institution's books, papers, theses, and other works which can be digitized or were 'born digital'. Many of these repositories are made available to the general public with few restrictions, in accordance with the goals of open access, in contrast to the publication of research in commercial journals, where the publishers often limit access rights. Institutional, truly free, and corporate repositories are sometimes referred to as digital libraries.
