|Abstract||Though more than 600 million people worldwide use the Internet, it takes only one virus writer to make just about all of us miserable. Like a single stray neutron in a critical mass of plutonium, a lone virus can trigger a chain reaction that spews thousands of copies from desktop to desktop. Last summer's aptly named SoBig virus was an all-too-real example of this danger. "At [SoBig.F's] peak, one out of 17 e-mails that we were processing was a copy of the…virus," says Josh White of U.S.-based e-mail security group MessageLabs. "Certainly we haven't seen numbers like this before." At that time AOL scanned 40.5 million e-mails and found SoBig.F in half of them. In fact, SoBig accounted for 98 percent of all viruses then circulating---all this from a single virus-writing miscreant. How can we possibly hope to stop the inevitable legions of similarly determined troublemakers? Better get used to it: There are no easy solutions to the virus problem.|

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.
