After a year and a half’s work by the resource discovery taskforce our vision was launched at a JISC and UKOLN event called Survive or Thrive.
The vision focuses on the aggregation of metadata about library, museum and archive collections to allow the creation or enhancement of innovative resource discovery and library collection management service. The vision paper can be downloaded from the IE repository.
The vision is designed to steer work up until the end of 2012. The implementation plan describes the work to realise the vision in more detail. JISC will be funding projects that contribute to the implementation plan. However achieving the vision will only be possible by working with a wide range of stakeholders and the work of those people will also contribute to the implementation plan.
The implementation plan has a page on this blog and it will continue to be developed and will track all work relevant to the plan.
If you want to learn more about the taskforce you can explore the reports from each meeting or read about related work by browsing the pages menu on the right hand side. Future posts will go into more detail about the background and the context for this work as well as reporting on progress with the implementation plan.
