|Abstract||E-print archives (electronic preprints) have become the first choice of many researchers for current research, breaking scientific discoveries, and keeping up with colleagues (and competitors) at other institutions. The citations being received to e-prints are evidences of the above stated importance of the archives. Impact Factor and Immediacy Index devised by Thomson Scientific Inc. (formerly Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), Philadelphia) are two parameters based on citations to evaluate traditional journals. These parameters for nearly 6000 scientific journals from all over the world are published yearly as Journal Citation Reports (JCR). As a case study, the present work has made an endeavour to calculate impact factors and immediacy indices of archives uploaded in the Physics categories of arXiv.org of Cornell University, USA by treating them as individual journals. The Physics e-prints uploaded in arXiv.org are classified into twelve sub-categories: viz. AstroPhysics (astro-ph); Condensed Matter (cond-mat); General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology (gr-qc); High Energy Physics - Experiment (hep-ex); High Energy Physics - Lattice (hep-lat); High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); High Energy Physics - Theory (hep-th); Mathematical Physics (math-ph); Nuclear Experiment (nucl-ex); Nuclear Theory (nucl-th); General Physics (Physics); and Quantum Physics (quant-ph). Calculated impact factors and immediacy indices reveal that Nuclear Experiment has made good impact among the categories and followed by High-Energy Physics classes of arXiv.org (High Energy Physics – Theory; High Energy Physics – Lattice; High Energy Physics – Experiment; and High Energy Physics - Phenomenology). The citation trackers like Scopus and web-tools like ‘Google-Scholar’, ‘Citebase’, ‘Citeseer’ etc. will further strengthen the concluded impact of the archives.|

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.
