|Abstract||Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is a set of product compatibility standards for wireless local area network based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. Wi-Fi was intended to be used for mobile devices, Local Area Networks and internet access through Access Points. The importance of communication of information and the technologies required for are stated. The importance of Wi-Fi technology and its application in libraries are stated. If wi-fi broke the shackles of cable networking, wi-max took it a step ahead. Wi-max could just be the most significant technology todate, in making wireless access ubiquitous. 4G will enable wireless subscribers to view high-definition television programming through wireless broadband connections. Wi-fi applications in libraries is like any other implementation, the vital aspect to a successful wireless implementation is also good planning. The technicalities of Wi-Fi and problems are discussed. Suitable solutions to over come these problems are given|

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 9 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.
