  • 20/04/11 | Supporting education and research | Slide Taskforce ToRs
    • Define the requirements for the provision of a shared UK resource discovery infrastructure for libraries, archives, museums and related resources to support education and research
    • Focus on metadata that can assist in access to resources, with special reference to serials, books, archives/special collections, museum collections
  • 20/04/11 | Supporting education and research | Slide A Collaborative Effort Full list of members at: http://rdtf.jiscinvolve.org/scope-and-terms-of-reference/

    • To enable [initially] UK HE to implement a fit for purpose infrastructure to underpin the consumption of resources held by libraries, museums and archives for the purpose of research and learning
    • To address the key challenge of providing end users with flexible and tailored resource discovery and delivery services that suit their needs
    • To help to provide institutions with services that help them reduce duplication of effort and increase efficiency and effectiveness
    Purpose
  • 20/04/11 | Supporting education and research | Slide
