The AIMSS project was based on work carried out in SUNCAT Phase 1. This looked at the ONIX for Serials formats, which were under development, for the transmission of information appertaining to serials from publishers/aggregators etc to participants in the chain including libraries. It was recognised that the format could be used to provide SUNCAT with up-to-date information on holdings of participating libraries. ONIX for Serials is an internationally developed, structured and extensible format for the transmission of data about serials. The ONIX for Serials formats have been piloted as part of their development but they have not been tested by UK libraries. Serials Solutions provides accurate data for more than 100 aggregators, publishers and subscription agents and SUNCAT, maintained by EDINA, is creating a union catalogue of serials (print and electronic) held by UK research libraries. The broad aims are to transmit information about serials subscriptions and update library records held in MARC 21 format. Project start date: 2005-10-01. Project end date: 2006-05-31.
