Frutto di una partnership tra università e istituzioni educative britanniche, è un vero e proprio portale delle discipline umanistiche.
“Content deposited in institutional repositories is growing, however there is no comprehensive and easy way to search and retrieve this content. We believe that, in order to facilitate access to scholarly and educational material, this content should be widely accessible to the UK education community. In partnership with UKOLN and SHERPA, Intute has been commissioned by JISC to develop a repository search infrastructure. This development will build on the ePrints UK project, and aims to facilitate the discovery, access and retrieval of material.
The project is in 3 phases.
- Extending the scalability of the search technology and infrastructure
- Development of search and aggregation services allowing metadata enhancement
- Development of semantic and contextual search and discovery features.
In doing so, we hope to raise the visibility of repository content and perpetuate the deposit of content.”
