Digitisation is the representation of an object (usually an analogue signal) by generating a series of numbers that describe a discrete set of its points or samples. The result is called digital representation. In modern practice, the digitised data is in the form of binary numbers, which facilitate computer processing and other operations, but strictly speaking, digitising simply means the conversion of analogue source material into a numerical format; the decimal or any other number system can be used instead. A digital library is a special library with a focused collection of digital objects that can include text, visual material, audio material, video material, stored as electronic media formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media), along with means for organising, storing, and retrieving the files and media contained in the library collection.

There are lots of digital library software by which we can store, handle and process digital materials. Some of the software are- ‘DSpace’, ‘EPrints’, ‘Fedora Commons’, ‘Greenstone’, ‘Knowledge Tree’, ‘OPUS’ and much more. Now a days DSpace has made a milestone for making digital libraries. The open source feature is the most important for DSpace. Through it, we can customise according to our need. Here I have provided some tips and tricks for implement DSpace and after that some customisation and setting up the administration and after that how to use it.
