Introducing the Names project

Posted in reports by Amanda Hill on 26 February, 2008

It’s been a bit slow in coming, but this is the blog associated with the JISC-funded Names project. The project started back in July 2007 and is charged with investigating the feasibility of developing a name authority service for use by the UK’s wide range of institutional and subject-based repositories. Names is a partnership between the British Library and Mimas, a data centre at the University of Manchester.

The work of the project has been roughly divided into two phases. Phase one (ending about now) has been all about research and requirements-gathering. The Landscape Report and the Requirements Report (both available from the Documents section of the project’s website) are the end-results of this phase of the project. These will help the project team to determine the functionality and form of the prototype that we’ll be constructing and testing in the next phase.
