|Abstract||In environments that demand a high degree of flexibility together with rapid and accurate decision-making, network centric command structures have been promoted as “the” organizational solution to meet these demands. Network centric command structures, arguably, enhance the situation awareness and the understanding of the situation. The NCW (Network Centric Warfare) Learning Lab was developed to allow systematic, simultaneous experimental manipulation of structural and individual varibles, in order to observe the effects on dependent variables such as actual and perceived operational effectiveness. The Learning Lab was designed to particularly stimulate the dynamic aspects of decision making. Our preliminary results show that a network centric organization does not necessarily lead to higher perceived situation awareness or better understanding of the situation. Although our findings are in contrast to contemporary writings on the organization of military operations, we find them to make sense in light of basic theories about information processing in organizations. 1|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built 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 designed 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 developed, operated and maintained from 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 Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
