|Abstract||The ATLAS trigger system is responsible for reducing the event rate, from the design bunch-crossing rate of 40 MHz, to an average recording rate of 200 Hz, by selecting signal-like events out of the extremely large background. The ATLAS trigger is designed in three levels. The first-level (L1) is implemented in custom-built electronics, the two levels of the high level trigger (HLT) are software triggers executed on large computing farms. The first-level trigger is comprised of calorimeter, muon and forward triggers to identify event features, such as missing transverse energy, as well as candidate electrons, photons, jets and muons. These inputs are used by the L1 Central Trigger to for a L1 Accept (L1A) decision. L1A and timing information is sent to all sub-detectors. Summary information is sent to the subsequent levels of the trigger system. We will demonstrate that the ATLAS trigger performed smoothly throughout 2010 and 2011, show- ing the evolution with the increasing LHC luminosity (1032 −1033 cm−1 s−1) in order to maintain a high selection efficiency. A large part of the talk will be devoted to recent improvements of the L1 trigger system.|

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.
