|Abstract||My thesis advisor, Dr. Michael Logan, deserves my utmost thanks for the time, patience, and knowledgeable insight he invested into this project. I want to especially thank him for the two weeks he spent making revisions. I apologize to him for my procrastination and I appreciate his understanding. I also extend my gratitude to my other committee members. The optimism and constructive criticism of Dr. Elizabeth Williams not only greatly benefited my thesis but also sustained me through my first semester of graduate school when I had misgivings about finishing the program. The last minute acceptance of Dr. James Huston in replacing Dr. Richard Rohrs allowed me to finish sooner. I appreciate Dr. Huston for taking the time out of his schedule to sit on my committee. I would also like to thank Dr. Rohrs for his participation on my committee. Although not on the final committee, he helped me to improve my writing and historical knowledge and he always offered positive, uplifting encouragement. I appreciate the work of Dr. Bill Bryans and the Department of History in providing the scholarships and financial support that funded my research. I also want to thank my friend, Skye Murray, for her encouragement. Sometimes she kept me on task and sometimes she distracted me but she always made the experience more enjoyable. Dr. Brad Duren also deserves special mention. His passion for history was the reason I considered graduate work. Our department secretaries, Susan Oliver and Diana Hover, made the application process far easier and more personable than any other iii history graduate school for which I applied and they have helped me with dozens of office projects. Dr. Ron Petrin and Mark Furnish both offered insight and encouragement|

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 9 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.
