Abstract

Deliberate exploitation of natural resources and excessive use of environmentally abhorrent materials have resulted in environmental disruptions threatening the life support systems. A human centric approach of development has already damaged nature to a large extent. This has attracted the attention of environmental specialists and policy makers. It has also led to discussions at various national and international conventions. The objective of protecting natural resources cannot be achieved without the involvement of professionals from multidisciplinary areas. This chapter recommends a model for the creation of knowledge-based systems for natural resources management. Further, it describes making use of unique capabilities of remote sensing satellites for conserving natural resources and managing natural disasters. It is exclusively for the people who are not familiar with the technology and who are given the task of framing policies.

Background: Information Of Digital Libraries

Emerging digital culture has paved the way to the creation of digital libraries, which have made it easier for users to access information through digital systems and networks. With the global increase in the quantity of information and the digital devices that store it comes an increase in the issues of security and privacy for library users and digital materials. Users of such digital devices would need to understand the capacity of each device and the restrictions associated with the information being disseminated. The cost of updating current technologies and the security of information has become a vital concern for digital librarians. Also of equal concern is the environmental impact of the security and privacy of information available to its originators and its users in digital libraries.
