|Description||In order to determine the relative effectiveness of improperly stored, preexposed sensitometric film in the evaluation of processing during a several month period of time, a comparison was made of medical x-ray film which was exposed with a light sensitometer and immediately processed (freshly exposed) and film that had been exposed with a light sensitometer at an earlier time (preexposed) and processed along with the freshly exposed film. The freshly exposed and preexposed films were further divided into a properly stored group, in our darkroom, and an environmentally stored group. The environmentally stored films were kept in a light-tight box in the trunk of a car during the months of August through October, 1983, and August through September, 1984. Each sample set of data included (1) properly stored and freshly exposed film, (2) properly stored and preexposed film, (3) environmentally stored and freshly exposed film; and (4) environmentally stored and preexposed film. A complete set of films was processed at specific times during the study. Initially the time interval for processing between two consecutive sample sets was measured in minutes, with this time interval increasing to hours, days, and weeks. The last sample set was processed 70 days after the study began. Density differences as large as 0.70 between the freshly exposed and preexposed films were observed. A second trial was conducted in order to repeat some of our earlier observations. Two additional film types were incorporated into the second trial. Observations will be discussed along with implications for quality assurance test procedures.|

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.
