Institutional Digital Repository (IDR) has been created and being populated regularly. NIH digital repository is an archive for collecting, preserving and disseminating digital copies of the intellectual output of NIH in the form of Research Papers, Books, Chapters in Books, Research Reports, Annual Reports, Conference Proceedings, Infrastructure Documents, Layouts & Maps, Institute Documents, Lecture Notes, Presentations, Outreach Material, Photographs, Videos, News Clippings, Serial Publications, Special Publications, and Training Reports etc. NIH IDR is a global showcase of its research output and thus enhances visibility of Institute’s scholarly hydrological research. This will facilitate dissemination and promotion of research output by open access (except restricted content). As such, IDR has the potential to attract millions of readers and get the institution’s research in front of right eyes.
