|Abstract||As all of us know, whether we are seven or 77, each of us can have challenging needs when in good health or when we are suffering from any number of ailments. The reality of understanding users is that health issues can color our lives in ways we might never expect. In this issue's forum, Mike Wu discusses the pressing needs of adults with severe memory impairments and what can be done to support them and their families through technology. What this article reminds us is that even when we consider our older or younger users, we must also consider the people that live with them. Their care-givers, whether they be grown-children or parents, can play a critical role in the lives of family members at any age. This forum on life-long interactions celebrates not just one age of user, but all ages working together to make life a little better for all of us.<br />---Allison Druin|

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 several 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.
