|Abstract||With a view to developing a new dating method based on extinct 6.8 m.y. Pd/sup 107/, silver was isolated from 18 samples of the iron meteorites Bristol, Canyon Diablo, Grant, Odessa, Pinon, Sandia Mountains, and Toluca. The silver concentation (11 to 197 ppb) was determined on an aliquot by isotope dilution and also by neutron activation analysis of separate samples. The isotopic composition was measured by surface ionization on a mass spectrometer. No enrichment of Ag/sup 107/ was detected in any of the samples: the delta Ag/sup 107/ values for Canyon Diablo and toluca were 1.2 plus or minus 2.3 and 3.5 plus or minus 3.7 per mil, compared with Murthy's values of 40 plus or minus 4 and 22 plus or minus 4 per mil. The grand average of all analyses was 0 plus or minus 1.5 per mil. That this discrepancy was not due to contamination is shown by the low blanks (<5 per cent), by the agreement of the neutron activation and isotope dilution results, and by other evidence. Sampling error is also not a likely explanation, since its probability is < 1.6 x 10/sup -3/ under the most favorable assumptions. Possibly the apparent anomalies found by Murthy are in some way related to the anomalous value he obtained for terrestrial silver (Ag/ sup 107//Ag/sup 109/ = 1.064 plus or minus 0.002, compared with 1.082 plus or minus 0.002, the average ratio found by four other investigators).

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.
