|Abstract||In this paper we study the evolution of the core and corona of nine open clusters using the projected radial density profiles derived from homogeneous CCD photometric data obtained with the 105 cm Kiso Schmidt telescope. The age and galactocentric distance of the target clusters vary from 16 to 2000 Myr and 9 to 10.8 kpc, respectively. Barring Be 62, which is a young open cluster, other clusters show a uniform reddening across the cluster region. The reddening in Be 62 varies from E(B -V )min = 0.70 mag to E(B -V ) max = 1.00 mag. The coronae of six of the clusters in the present sample are found to be elongated; however, on the basis of the present sample it is not possible to establish any correlation between the age and shape of the core. The elongated core in the case of the young cluster Be 62 may reflect the initial conditions in the parental molecular cloud. We find that in the galactocentric distance range 9-10 kpc, the core and corona/cluster extent of the clusters increase with the galactocentric distance.|

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.
