Description
With the advancement of technology, the world witnessed the rapid growth of research and development activities. Research and development activities ensued in a huge literature outcome. The invention of the internet and World Wide Web reduced distances among scientific institutions around the world. Research, education, and policymaking institutions started sharing scholarly and literary outcomes around the world. Great initiatives like Budapest Open Access Initiative, Bethesda Statement, and the Berlin Declaration played an important role in the open access movement of digital information. Montreal Declaration during Law Via Internet Conference in 2002 resulted in a dawning era for Free Access to Law Movement around the world. In 2010, Durham Statement adopted by law librarians of Law Schools in the United States of America is also counted an important development where all law librarians agreed to facilitate access of law reviews in open access to cut printing cost and greater accessibility of the scholarly articles published in law reviews. UNESCO guidelines for public government information also supported free access to government information to the public which involves public money. The topic of the book “Public Digital Estate” is actually a combined idea of both the author based on the English law term used for copyright left or without copyright work “Public Domain”. Reveal their motivation and inspiration for writing the book. The idea of the book is based on our experiences gained working for law libraries for the last fifteen years. Currently, India has more than 2000 academic institutions including law universities, departments, affiliated colleges, and research institutions. Uneven distribution of financial allocation for law libraries has made a greater difference between institutional outcomes. Centrally and few state-funded institutions facilitated access of legal information through subscription-based databases, however, the majority of law libraries have inadequate sources of information. The book is actually being coined for law students, faculty members, research scholars, and law libraries in need of extensive research assistance. The idea of the book was not new and spontaneously conceived but a result of a long journey of research to tag the most authentic, reliable, and scholarly assets available in the public digital estate. We have contrived to compile this book to collate all the best possible free access information including judgments, legislative material, parliamentary documents, law journals, and scholarships and books.

Summary
The book contains ten chapters based on intensive research done on the timeline of public domain and open access initiatives around the world. The first chapter propounds an explanation of public domain, open access, evaluation of open access resources, and explanation of relevant terms. Public digital assets or public domain is a term basically used and related to copyright laws. Though in the second chapter, copyright laws under the regime of open access around the world and India, and creative commons licenses, is set forth. A timeline describing the brief development of public domain and open access initiatives around the world is peddled for wider understanding and bridging relevance of initiatives in the third chapter. The next six chapters postulate public domain legal resources around the world pertaining to parliamentary resources, legislative resources, judicial resources, law reform resources, journals and scholarship, and open access books. In the last chapter open access initiatives in India and various public domain resources useful for legal education and research are posited. We have tried over best to cope up best and scholarly resources available in the public domain or open access for law students, faculty and research scholars.
