Authors: Gupta, V K

Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: In September 1999, the task force on conservation and sustainable use of medicinal plants of the Planning Commission, Government of India, constituted a core group for integration and consolidation of database on medicinal plants. As a sequel to this, after detailed discussions among the members, the Group assigned the responsibility of preparing an approach paper on establishing a national traditional knowledge digital library (TKDL) to the author of this paper which is based on the approach paper prepared by him.

The paper attempts to justify the need for setting up of a national TKDL, which could be utilized as a proof of the 'prior art' by the examiners of patent offices, nationally and internationally. It mainly addresses the issues relating to the creation of TKDL at conceptual level, however, an attempt has also been made to define the major work processes so that a realizable implementation plan becomes available.
