|Abstract||We present the observational results of Galactic H II region Sh 2-294, using optical photometry, narrowbandimaging, and radio continuum mapping at 1280 MHz, together with archival data from the 2MASS, MSX, and IRASsurveys. The stellar surface density profile indicates that the radius of the cluster associated with the Sh 2-294 regionis ~2.3' . We estimate the minimum reddening E(B-V)=1.35 mag and a distance of 4.8 ± 0.2 kpc to the region.The ratio of the total to the selective extinction (Rᵥ) is found to be 3.8 ± 0.1, indicates an anomalous reddening law forthe dust inside the cluster region. We identified the ionizing source of the H II region, and spectral type estimates areconsistent with a star of spectral type ~B0 V. The 2MASS JHKs images reveal a partially embedded cluster associatedwith the ionizing source along with a small cluster towards the eastern border of Sh 2-294. The radio continuum and H images show the ionization front along the direction of the small cluster. An arc-shaped diffuse molecular hydrogenemission and a half-ring of dust emission are also seen in the direction of the ionization front at 2.12 and 8 µm(MSX ),respectively. Self-consistent radiative transfer model of mid- to far-infrared continuum emission detected near smallcluster is in good agreement with the observed spectral energy distribution of a B1.5 ZAMS star. The morphologicalcorrelation between the ionized and molecular gas, along with probable timescale involved between the ionizing star,evolution of H II region, and small cluster, indicates that the star formation activity observed at the border is probablytriggered by the expansion of H ii region.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
