|Abstract||A lange experiment on extensive air showers was recently set up at Cornell University, similar to that at M. 1. T., which employs 15 plastic scintillators. Five of the detectors are near the center of the array at spacings of 3 to 80 m. Five others are spaced about the center on a circle of 150- m radius. and the remaining five are on a circle of 500-m riulius. The main component of the apparatus is a magnetic meson spectrometer located near the central counters. When a lange shower occurs, a photograph is taken of a bank of 15 oscillograph tubes upon which all the scintillator pulses are registered. The times and heights of the pulses determine the direction and location of the shower axis and the size of the shower. If a meson has been recorded simultaneously, this fact and the approximate meson energy are registered on the same film by means of neon bulbs. With the oscilloscope method about 200 showers per day are exanfined. (A.C.)|

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 (NDLI) 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. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, 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. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI 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 the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
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 (NDLI) project.
