Dear Mamta:

Thanks for passing this link along. I have to disagree though with
your notion of the site as "a US govt funded digital library". This
seems to imply that it is some sort of govt  think tank or govt
controlled institute. As far as I could tell from a quick browse, the
site appears to be run by a couple of midwest universities. While
these institutions probably do get a lot of government funding (though
mostly from state govt., not federal) my guess is this institute has
almost no contact with government agencies or funders. Guessing a bit
further, I would hazard that the no doubt left-wing (for America)
scholars who run the project probably conduct their work in ways that
are quite a bit removed from govt policy and opinions.
