Abstract
The inclusion of information and communication technology in education has changed the way of accessing knowledge or information, and digital repositories have become the solution to preserve old/new information and materials and allow open access that is available to the public. In this context, the Government of India has developed 1. Tribal Digital Document Repository, and 2. Tribal repository portal under the ministry of tribal affairs to provide research papers, books, reports and documents, folk songs, videos, original images, audios, and other empirical and ground information with their metadata related to tribal cultures and heritage from different aspects of tribal life for the transformation of knowledge and culture. This initiative can connect researchers, administrators, academicians, freelancers, policymakers, governmental and non-governmental organizations, generalists, learners and the community, and others who are interested in knowing or working on tribes. The current paper focuses on the benefits of repositories for conservation, promotion, and development of the tribes and suggestive measures to promote access to information from available repositories for tribal culture and heritage.
