|Abstract||This paper introduces a system architecture which allows a high degree of restructuring so that system resources may be tailored to processing requirements. The proposed system organization consists of a large number of byte-slice processors interconnected through a system of busses. Each processor is capable of communicating with every other processor in the system and any number of adjacent processors may be strung together to create a wider arithmetic capability than is possible with a single processor. Processors may be organized into a number of independent teams while processor teams may, in turn, be organized in a hierarchical fashion to allow for concurrent processing. Processor teams may function either in cooperation with or completely independent of other processor teams. All communication throughout the system consists of information packets containing the data to be transferred and a series of tags which indicate the destination address for the data and the action to be taken by the processor upon receipt of the information packet. Two types of busses are employed; Conventional busses and the circulating loop (or Pierce loop). The circulating loop moves an information packet in a fixed direction a uniform distance in each unit of time and therefore allows independent data transfer operations to be carried out simultaneously. Several examples illustrate the utility of the proposed architecture.|

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.
