The Resource Discovery Network Subject Portals Project has been developing portal functionality for five of the subject hubs of the Resource Discovery Network (RDN), BIOME, the bio-medical sciences hub; EEVL, the engineering, maths and computer sciences hub; HUMBUL, the humanities hub; PSIGate, the physical sciences hub and SOSIG, the social sciences hub. A subject portal, for the purposes of this project therefore, is a tailored view of the web within a particular subject area, with access to high-quality information resources made easier for the user through aggregated cross searching; streamlined account management; user profiling; and the provision of additional services.
