Disseminating Service Registry Records

Apps, Ann (2006) Disseminating Service Registry Records. In Martens, Bob and Dobreva, Milena, Eds. Proceedings ELPUB2006, The Tenth International Conference on Electronic Publishing - Digital Spectrum: Integrating Technology and Culture, pp. 37-47, Bansko (Bulgaria).
The JISC Information Environment Service Registry (IESR) contains descriptions of collections of resources available to researchers, learners and teachers in the UK, along with technical service access details. This paper describes the data model and metadata description schema of IESR, and the services IESR provides to disseminate its records. There is a particular focus on the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) interface, including a possible use scenario. IESR's position within a wider information environment, its relationship to other initiatives, and future possible service registry directions are discussed.
