A few of the Jerome project team are at the JISC/RLUK event in London: ‘Discovery – building a UK metadata ecology‘. Our slides are running on a screen in the foyer; I’ll be hanging around to talk about them.

The current version of the Jerome search portal (complete with all of Nick’s recent enhancements) got a (somewhat impromptu) airing at Goldsmiths, University of London on Wednesday, at a CPD event on open data and mashups, organised by the M25 Consortium of academic libraries.
I demo-ed the features of the Jerome record page, talked about the ethos of Jerome search and the JISC project, and kicked off a group discussion about the difficulties in developing a mashup ‘culture’ in universities.
I’m in Birmingham for the JISC Infrastructure for Resource Discovery start-up meeting. We’re here to get to know the other 7 projects that JISC has funded. Here’s what we’ll be talking about:
The objectives for this meeting are:
- To introduce the bigger picture of the resource discovery taskforce work and all of the projects that are involved
- To share approaches and knowledge on the key issues for the programme – technical approaches, licensing and aggregation.For this session each project will need to prepare a 5 minute overview of their project. We would like your overview to address the following questions
- What content and metadata are you working with?
- How will this data be made available?
- What are your use cases for the data?
- What benefits to your institution and the sector do you anticipate?12.30 Discussion of technical approaches
- Each project will be asked to briefly outline the biggest technical challenge they face in their project. We will then look for common issues and opportunities for projects to collaborate.
- What technical approaches and tools are you using?
And here are my slides for the 5-minute presention on Jerome:
