|Abstract||Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO) provides various scientific information services to the user community through web using social networking technology. This paper highlights the concept, methodology, and need of social networking technology adapted by DESIDOC to some of the specialised services. Special focus has been given on DRDO Blog and DRDO Wiki. Paper also discusses the customisation and experience in using Wordpress software for DRDO Blog and creation of multi-lingual web pages to the multi-faceted library community. This software was tested for nearly three months before it was made available to the entire DRDO user community. In addition to Blog and Wiki, the paper also addresses the implementation of DRDO Institutional Repository. The paper concludes that using blogs and wikis is an effective way for library community to stay current and for libraries to disseminate information in a timely manner with presentation of updated content.|

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.
