Digital Library of India, part of the online services of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and partner in the Million Book Project, provides free access to many books in English and Indian languages. The scanning of Indian language books has created an opportunity for developing Indian language optical character recognition (OCR) software. The publications are mainly in PDF or QuickTime format.

Because of copyright laws, the texts are all out of copyright and therefore not sources for current information, but rather useful for history and background.

As of 2006 (November 10), DLI had scanned 84,895 titles.

Representative titles include:

  • Ancient India, McCrindle J. W.. 1885.
  • Ancient Indian Polity, Aiyangar K. V. Rangaswami. 1935.
  • History of the Parsis Vol-I, Karaka Dosabhai Framji. 1884.
  • A Treatise on Kala-Azar, Brahmachari Upendranath. 1928.
  • " Aligarh kee taleemi tehreek", Khwaja Ghulamus Sayyedain, 1931
  • " Makateeb-e-Sanai by Professor Nazir Ahmed, 1962
