Taking its online presence to a whole new level, British Council India has re-launched its digital library services, ramping it up with new attractions. While the regular online membership gave users unlimited checkouts of e-journals and academic e-books, the latest version takes it up a notch by offering access to films, documentaries, magazines and works of English literature. All of this, at an introductory offer of `999 per year.

Administered from the Delhi branch, the premium online membership will see inclusion of three new online portals that the British Council is tying up with. The first, IndieFlix, is a repertoire of thousands of award-winning indie films, short films and documentaries from across the world. For those who like to go beyond the regular cinema fare available at the local theatres and television, this is a great addition.
