Lowering the barriers from Discovery to Delivery: a JISC funded EDINA and Mimas project
Palmer, Joy Elizabeth
Abstract – Purpose The paper describes the context and the progress with the Discovery to Delivery project. Approach Having set the scene for discovery to delivery, the paper describes how the project work was divided into 4 separate but interlinked strands. The methodologies for each strand are described and the outcomes are critically assessed. Findings – The Project was successful in demonstrating that services created separately by different organisations could be enhanced to provide a seamless approach from discovery to delivery for users. It had been planned to develop a link to local document supply services but investigation revealed that further investigation would be required before such a service could usefully be supplied. Originality/value The project is an example of interworking between the national data centres with services which have been already established.
