- This paper describes approaches for the development of quality assurance
procedures which are needed in order to ensure that deliverables from digital
library programmes will be interoperable. The adoption of open standards is
widely acknowledged as essential in development programmes, but in a distributed
development environment which is the basis for many programmes within the
educational and research sector, it can be difficult to ensure that programme
deliverables actually implement appropriate standards and best practices.
The author describes the approaches to the development of a quality culture
which is being taken by the JISC in the UK in its development of an Information
Environment which seeks to provide seamless access to quality scholarly resources.
