This study scrutinizes the student’s satisfaction towards the co-curricular trainers in Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Malaysia. The underlying principle is that to provide positive information to the trainers to grant students better quality of co-curricular service in boosting up their satisfaction level. The theoretical framework of students’ satisfaction (SSCT model) was developed based on relevant literatures and theoretical considerations adopted from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) Model. A survey was distributed to 400 co-curricular students with 90.5% response rate. Six latent variables: student’s expectation towards the trainer, perceived quality, perceived value, students satisfaction (SSCT), trainers image and students confidence were asked in the survey. Data was analyzed using structural equation modeling technique, to estimate the fit indices for all the latent variables. Results conjectured that students’ satisfaction (SSCT model) is analogous to the existing model (ACSI model). Thus, the SSCT model can be implemented as a stuctured model for measuring students’ satisfaction towards the co-curricular trainers as the fit indices of the model is having a good fit. Further investigation revealed that all index scores for each Co-curricular Unit are above 65% except for the index score by Music Arts Unit.

Essential, or genuine, freshwater crabs are heterotreme brachyurans that live in freshwater, semi-earthbound, or earthbound territories, and that replicate by direct advancement, lacking free-living larval stages. Essential freshwater brachyuran crabs are spoken to be in excess of 1300 species and contain one-fifth of all the world’s brachyurans or genuine crabs. The examination by Cumberlidge on the preservation status of freshwater crabs uncovered that one-6th of all evaluated species have a raised danger of extinction; nonetheless, given that practically 50% of the species need information on defenselessness, that appraisal is an underestimation of the genuine hazard level. According to Cumberlidge, Trichodactylidae and Pseudothelphusidae (both confined to the Neotropics) have the most astounding risk. Cumberlidg evaluated the preservation status of the freshwater crabs in the Neotropics and presumed that 34% of pseudo thelphusids have a raised danger of extinction, and 56% of the types of this family are information insufficient.

Information needs different information contraption has impacted our regular day to day existence and research and progression works out. Latest devices for information correspondence have realized the speedy diffusing of information and miracle deal with practices in research and academic circles in India. Academic libraries, for the most part annexed to university and research establishment as centres of information organization, benefitted by the snappy changes in advancement. The approach of modernized PC in media transmission and fluctuating media headways has opened up better methodologies for social event, masterminding and dispersing consistent and specific information. Scholastic libraries have officially changed their particular breaking points by using reasonably innovative data advances to improve and arrange their particular data assets and associations.

Software testing activities are usually planned by human experts, while test automation tools are limited to execution of pre-planned tests only. Regression analysis can imply a far wider range of statistical procedures than often appreciated. In a number of common data mining procedures are discussed within a regression framework. The author discussed one of the newly emerging challenges is how to minimize the amount of retesting after the software is modified. Some people believe that the program correctness can never be demonstrated through software testing. Data mining algorithms need a technique that partitions the domain values of an attribute in a restricted set of ranges, only because considering every possible ranges of domain values is infeasible. Genetic Algorithm (GA) is a self adaptive optimization searching algorithm.

This paper describes various facets in collection development in a digital environment in the libraries. The various changes that have occurred in acquisition, retrieval and storage of information processes due to technological developments have been discussed. Limitations, issues, challenges restrictions and problems being faced by library managers and clientele due to the same have also been highlighted. The way these developments have affected libraries in particular, and changed the role of librarian has also been focused. This paper is indicating e resources of libraries a very important role in this fast changing go green of publishing. Their role includes identification of selection of information, its organization of management, storage retrieval and dissemination to right users at the right time at right place at right price and in right format. The goal of any academic libraries is to meet the teaching, research and other information needs of the user. The proliferation of the literature on all the subjects, price of journals hike in currency conversion rate and the budget crunch made the libraries depend upon each other.
