|Abstract||This paper describes concepts that have been developed for the layout of the FIRE buildings and facilities, and identifies major site requirements. The FIRE test cell, approximately 30/spl times/30 meters, is part of a structurally integrated tokamak and hot cell building. The tokamak centerline is set 4.2 m above the floor. Overhead space is sufficient to allow a bridge crane to remove the tie rod structure from the assembled tokamak. FIRE will be designed so that the thick outer wall of the vacuum vessel and the TF coils provide enough shielding so that the exterior of the machine remains accessible for hands-on maintenance. However, during operation and during maintenance activities that require the removal of a port plug additional shielding is required. A movable shield roof, which operates above the tokamak but below the crane, is provided to close the shield boundary during operations. The FIRE facility will have a tritium inventory large enough to require that it must be licensed by the NRC. A non-site-specific plot plan has been developed and is described. The tokamak-hot cell building is placed in the center of the site and arbitrarily oriented so crane rails run north-south, and the hot cell is to the north of the tokamak. Major electrical facilities are located to the west, while vacuum pumping, cooling, and tritium processing facilities are located to the east. Office space is provided for a laboratory staff assumed to be 800. All buildings and facilities are developed assuming a "green-field" site, and costs are estimated accordingly. Site requirements and alternative site selection strategies are described. Savings could be obtained if an existing facility, particularly one where nuclear licensing is already established, could be utilized.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built 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 designed 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 developed, operated and maintained from 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 Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
