|Abstract||Abstract – Various arguments for increasing diversity and the presence of underrepresented groups in engineering have been put forth. However, little attention has been paid to those arguments themselves or their implications. The goal of this paper is to call attention to the need for further reflection upon and analysis of how engineering educators understand and discuss underrepresentation and diversity. Specifically, it examines the motivations of a diverse group of engineering educators to undertake work on feminist engineering education initiatives. It builds on prior scholarship from the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) of the ways in which underrepresentation has been framed as a problem. Participants ’ responses to the question of why underrepresentation is a problem are quoted at length and discussed. They are compared with prior findings from an analysis of the framings found in engineering education publications. Several differences between the publications and interview data are identified and the implications of these findings for engineering education, engineering education research, underrepresentation, and diversity more broadly, are then discussed. Index Terms – discourse, diversity, feminism, social justice, underrepresentation|

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.
