|Abstract||Data integration aims to combine heterogeneous information sources and to provide interfaces for accessing the integrated resource. Data integration is a collaborative task that may involve many people with different degrees of experience, knowledge of the application domain, and expectations relating to the integrated resource. It may be difficult to determine and control the quality of an integrated resource due to these factors. In this article, we propose a data integration methodology that has embedded within it iterative quality assessment and improvement of the integrated resource. We also propose an architecture for the realisation of this methodology. The quality assessment is based on an ontology representation of different users’ quality requirements and of the main elements of the integrated resource. We use description logic as the formal basis for reasoning about users’ quality requirements and for validating that an integrated resource satisfies these requirements. We define quality factors and associated metrics which enable the quality of alternative global schemas for an integrated resource to be assessed quantitively, and hence the improvement which results from the refinement of a global schema following our methodology to be measured. We evaluate our approach through a large-scale real-life case study in biological data integration in which an integrated resource is constructed from three autononous proteomics data sources.|

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.
