Quite simply the name, 5/99, refers to the number of a JISC circular letter. It was the fifth circular issued by the JISC in 1999. So the name is pretty meaningless to those outside the JISC or not involved in one of 54 projects that were funded via the circular. The majority of the projects have now completed, the programme end date was July 2003.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/5-99" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 feature article balviar notay rachel bruce british library bufvc cerlim edina jisc jisc collections mimas oai surrey institute of art & design ukoln university college london university of liverpool university of oxford university of strathclyde chcc dner eevl elib iconex iesr inspiral jafer jisc information environment jorum patois sosig subject portals project trilt xgrain zetoc accessibility archives authentication authorisation service cataloguing data data set database digital library e-learning ejournal framework further education geospatial data gis higher education infrastructure infrastructure service internet explorer interoperability java jstor learning objects licence metadata open archives initiative open source openurl portal repositories research resource discovery rslp search technology service registry sfx software standards usability video visualisation z39.50 Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1003 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Improving the Quality of Metadata in Eprint Archives http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/guy <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/guy#author1">Marieke Guy</a>, <a href="/issue38/guy#author2">Andy Powell</a> and <a href="/issue38/guy#author3">Michael Day</a> address the argument that the quality of service to end-users is markedly influenced by the quality of metadata being produced and provide suggestions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Throughout the eprints community there is an increasing awareness of the need for improvement in the quality of metadata and in associated quality assurance mechanisms.
