|Abstract||The Second ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on the Use of GIS in Public Health was held on November 5, 2014 in Orlando Florida, in conjuncture with the 21st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems. It has brought together researchers whose research is in the intersection of geospatial data management and public health. This workshop provided a forum for researchers and practitioners to share new ideas and techniques for Health-related GIS applications. Original research related to all aspects of GIS usages and applications in medical and in healthcare systems was invited; especially papers based on real-world experience were encouraged. The program committee consisted of a diverse set of members from academia, industry, and government research laboratories, each with expertise in different areas of HealthGIS: development, applications, and public health research. The workshop has provided a platform for an interdisciplinary dialog that is reflected in the program of the workshop.|

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.
