|Abstract||TThe GMRT H I 21cm-line observations of galaxies in the Eri- danus group are presented. The Eridanus group, at a distance of ∼ 23 Mpc, is a loose group of ∼ 200 galaxies. The group extends to more than 10 Mpc in projection. The velocity dispersion of the galaxies in the group is ∼ 240 km s−¹ . The galaxies are clustered into different sub-groups. The overall population mix of the group is 30% (E + S0) and 70% (Sp + Irr). The observations of 57 Eridanus galaxies were carried out with the GMRT for ∼ 200 h. H I emission was detected from 31 galaxies. The channel rms of ∼ 1 mJy beam−¹ was achieved for most of the image-cubes made with 4 h of data. The corresponding H I column density sensitivity (3σ ) is ∼ 1 × 10²⁰ cm−² for a velocity-width of ∼ 13.4 km s−¹ . The 3σ detection limit of H I mass is ∼ 1.2 × 10⁷ M☉ for a line-width of 50 km s− ¹ . Total H I images, H I velocity fields, global H I line profiles, H I mass surface densities, H I disk parameters and H I rotation curves are presented. The velocity fields are analysed separately for the approaching and the receding sides of the galaxies. These data will be used to study the H I and the radio con- tinuum properties, the Tully–Fisher relations, the dark matter halos, and the kinematical and H I lopsidedness in galaxies.|

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.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
