|Abstract||We evaluate performance of the 4K x 4K mosaic CCD camera system development at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics using four Thomson CCDs in a buttable configuration. The cameras system consists of a mosaic CCD dewar developed to mount the four CCDs and an electronics controller designed to control the mosaic configuration. A window based data acquisition software is used to configure the controller and acquire images from the camera. The calibration measurements indicate that all 4 CCDs have similar characteristics with a gain of about 3.9 e/ADU, rms noise of ~19 e, full-well capacity of ~ 57000 ADU, non-linearity of ~ 0.4 % and peak quantum efficiency of ~ 40 % in the red region. The problem of cross-talk is faced in this multi-readout system and a solution is offered. The problem of cross-talk is faced in this multi-readout system and a solution is offered. The performance of the mosaic CCD camera has been found satisfactory at the telescope.|

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.
