|Abstract||Indexing techniques during the earlier phases of their evolution relied entirely on the textual/ conceptual content for the purpose of treating conventional documents for the Index preparation. But with the changing times, the non-conventional documents, such as sound recordings, imageries, paintings, pictures, motion pictures, diagrams and maps etc. were inculcated in the collection maintained by the libraries. And in the modern society, they form integral part of any library collection. For the purpose of treating these non-textual documents, for the adequate storage and retrieval, fresh initiatives are required, preferably incorporating automated facilities. The present paper takes up the specific case of ‘Maps’, being a unique document with an ability to be auxiliary to every other discipline, in addition to that of the mother discipline i.e. Geography. But owing to the same very unique Characteristic, the Indexers face hazards while taking up the indexing of Maps. Since neither the Content nor the Concept based Indexing have been found to be absolutely suitable for the purpose. Therefore a feasibility study for a hybrid type of Indexing system has been attempted in the present paper. Beside the study explores the utility of Geographic Information System as a tool, which can further facilitate the preparation of an Index for a chunk of Maps.|

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.
