  • Flexible: different ways – different channels, different audiences. From more general to very specialist.
  • Not won here yet. Want visual – more user-friendly – how to achieve this? Very difficult challenge. More radical? BUT want to have semantic integrity. POTENTIAL. FLEXIBILITY. Some people only want an item.
  • Want to convey what the Hub offers and also give users a more visual experienceNeed to convey what Hub is and benefits of an aggregation
  • Not only a more user oriented way to present the data but also a means to build community, work with contributors, and implement SEO. Also now working with Copac.Contributors increasing suggest and write features. This can be VISUAL. Good Google juice – FINDABLE. Targets users – maybe being more specific is the way to go?
  • Be integrated: part of the information spaceBe visual: create impact, be user-friendlyBe flexible: have potential
  • Flexible: different ways – different channels, different audiences. From more general to very specialist.
