|Abstract||The Central Library of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur is engaged in developing a single window seamless access system for personalizing electronic contents to its faculty and researchers. Since a computer-based retrieval system requires carefully selected search terms to selectively separate useful and relevant information from the large collection of information available in a specific branch of knowledge and most of the electronic systems use technical terms in vogue in the concerned field, sticking to these standard terms while conducting the search helps to avoid the noise and irrelevant retrievals. Since thesaurus and other subject heading lists are very exhaustive and are not very much required in a research area description context, we look for alternative sources, but standard and authentic to create standard subject terms for use with the personalization system. As part of the system, we are devising a subsystem for assigning standardized terms for selecting and incorporating subject specializations of researchers. For example, with the aid of subject terms gathered from the specializations of the 34 Special Interest Groups of ACM and the research areas, courses and projects of faculty members in the relevant departments, we tried to arrive at standardized representation of subject terms for researchers in Computer and allied disciplines and those having computer related specializations in other branches. A similar attempt is being made to extend the subject specializations of researchers in Physics with the exhaustive list of terms provided in the Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme. This paper will briefly illustrate some personalization projects in USA and UK, contents identified for personalization in the Institute, standardization of Computer Science terms and a partial list for terms generated for Physics along with some of the challenges and benefits.|

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
