The Nizam of Hyderabad portal has been built by the team of National Virtual Library of India (NVLI) under the aegis of Ministry of Culture, Government of India.
This portal was initially developed as an auxiliary to the exhibition organised by the National Museum on Nizams of Hyderabad jewellery in 2019 called, ‘Jewels of India: The Nizam's Jewellery Collection.’ It was displayed in kiosks inside the Museum. Later, it was decided to release it for the public as an online portal.
The NVLI project was established in 2015. It envisions building an all-inclusive digital platform to provide access to multiple cultural resources such as the museums, national and state archives, libraries and district gazetteers which will cater to all sections of the society. It would be of special significance for students, academics and researchers. We envisage achieving this objective by generating well-researched content placed in an easily navigable user-friendly interface.
