|Abstract||The data extracted from electronic archives is a valuable asset; however, the issue of the (poor) data quality should be addressed before performing data analysis and decision-making activities. Poor data quality is frequently cleansed using business rules derived from domain knowledge. Unfortunately, the process of designing and implementing cleansing activities based on business rules requires a relevant effort. In this article, we illustrate a model-based approach useful to perform inconsistency identification and corrective interventions, thus simplifying the process of developing cleansing activities. The article shows how the cleansing activities required to perform a sensitivity analysis can be easily developed using the proposed model-based approach. The sensitivity analysis provides insights on how the cleansing activities can affect the results of indicators computation. The approach has been successfully used on a database describing the working histories of an Italian area population. A model formalizing how data should evolve over time (i.e., a data consistency model) in such domain was created (by means of formal methods) and used to perform the cleansing and sensitivity analysis activities.|

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.
