The Cutting Edge of SWORD
MetadataShow full item record
The presentation will give an overview of the UK JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) funded SWORD2 project. It will essentially be concerned with the need for, and development of, a specification that can be used for depositing research, and learning and teaching materials, and which gave rise to the original SWORD (Simple Web service Offering Repository Deposit) project 1. The presentation will look at how the original SWORD project and the current SWORD 2 project have realised the vision of a standard deposit protocol. The presentation will also consider the future of SWORD and look at some of the recent activity that has arisen around the project outputs, including the adoption into Microsoft Office, a SWORD Facebook application, a Netvibes widget, and current progress with international publishers.
