Digital Library Home
IRIEC a digital library, also called an online library, is an online database of digital objects that can include text, images, audios, videos, digital documents, or other digital media formats or a library accessible through the internet.
Disability is a multidisciplinary domain and there are resources available on public polices, legislations, road maps, assistive technologies, parental support, teacher support and direct child support documents /videos /presentations across the globe.
One of the challenges in this age of resource and information overload is in identifying the relevant resource one needs, its location, accessing the resources and link with networks to get support to use the resources available. This may require additional inputs to use the same at the field level.
IRIEC digital library is developed with two goals:
1. To create an easy to access catalogue of books/videos/presentations with the
Title of the resource material and having the following information:
Abstract to understand the focus of the resource material
Year of development of the resource
Link to down load
Who can use the Digital library?
Government departments, Teachers, Parents, People with disabilities, Anganwadi workers, rehab professionals, Resource teachers, Researchers, Universities and others working in education, health and development sectors will find the digital library a single window of access to resources available across the globe.
Linking with V.E.D.A talks:
We understand that mere access to the resource library may not be enough to use the knowledge /skills available in those materials. Therefore, we have arranged monthly workshops and monthly public lectures related to the existing and combining knowledge on various issues related to Assistive technologies, inclusive education, Disaster management, Prevention of disabilities, Safe motherhood, CBR, Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD), Policies, Evaluations etc under IRIEC website.
How to use the Digital library?

A nominal fee of Rs 500 per year allows you to participate in V.E.D.A talks by national and global experts, download resource materials and participate in short term training workshops free of cost.
Digital libraries have integrated accessibility features such as color contract, text size options, SLD easy to read, pdf text to speech etc.
The content in Indian languages may not include all accessibility features. As and when new assistive technologies are available, we will take steps to add more accessibility features.
Search and Find option:
Digital library has search and find option. For easy access a set of listings of 50 documents in a box is used. (1-50-51-100 etc)
