September 2010

The Tap into Bath demonstrator collection description database project has now ended and the database is no longer available. The Web site pages have been left in place as an illustration of the user view. The database and associated search and display interface software, together with installation documents, is open source and available for download and re-use with accreditation from this site.

UKOLN staff who worked on this project were: Ann Chapman and Shirley Keane.
