Both need to process large amounts of distributed data. Recognition of this common interest within both communities resulted in this invitation-only one-day workshop at the e-Science Institute in Edinburgh. It brought together interested parties from both the digital library and e-Science communities, and kicked off detailed discussion of the way forward for both.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue32/information-grid" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue32 event report ariadne staff google ibm ims jisc jisc collections microsoft ukoln university of bath w3c dner elib jisc information environment archives authentication cataloguing data data management data mining data set database digital library digital preservation digital repositories dublin core e-science framework identifier information architecture infrastructure interoperability metadata ontologies operating system persistent identifier portal preservation provenance research resource discovery rss schema semantic web service registry software url web services xml Sun, 07 Jul 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 902 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The JISC Information Environment and Web Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue31/information-environments <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue31/information-environments#author1">Andy Powell</a> and <a href="/issue31/information-environments#author2">Liz Lyon</a> look at possible relationships between the Web Services idea and earlier ideas about seamless access to information.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="The_JISC_Information_Environment">The JISC Information Environment</h3> <p>The Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER) [<a href="#1">1</a>] is a JISC-funded, managed, heterogeneous collection of information resources and services (bibliographic, full-text, image, video, geo-spatial, datasets, etc.) of particular value to the further and higher education communities.
