|Abstract||The primary objective of libraries is to organize and provide access to information to its users. Most common users of a library are scientists, academicians, technical personnel, students. It is important to disseminate the research information arrived /available to the Users in addition to archived data. It is also very important that users must be aware of the various services provided by libraries. Library managers are required to send clear messages to the users that the business of library is to provide required information in the shortest possible time. In this era of information technology, attracting people to library is very difficult. Library Heads and staff should become proactive in providing and propagating the services and facilities available at the Library.Based on the interaction with many users, and analyzing their experiences, it is found that minimization of reaction time in providing the required information to the users is essential. In this paper, services and the initiatives taken by Library known as “Knowledge Centre (KC)” of Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) to bring awareness about the services provided by KC are presented. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is effectively utilized by the Knowledge Centre to achieve the objective of making available information required by Scientists in time to help them to devote more time in project activities rather spending time in searching for information.|

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.
