Term Brief description Charts


The focus of Xgrain is the 'discovery' of journal articles and the like; having the intention of making best use of the JISC-funded Abstract & Indexing (A&I) database services that form part of the DNER and having particular regard to cross-searching and the ways in which A&I databases can be presented for use in learning and teaching. The DNER currently offers a range of high quality, specialised A&I database and electronic tables of contents (ETOC) services providing key discovery facilities for references to journal articles and other information objects that can be accessed from the desktop. However, there is evidence that they are under used, especially in learning and teaching. Xgrain aims to address underlying problems by developing a broker that will offer 'shallow' cross-searching of A&I databases across the DNER (using the Z39.50 protocol among others), with the facility to be transferred into native user interfaces for indepth searching.
