MetadataShow full item record
Institutional repositories are a major element of the Open Access movement and more specifically in research and education. Their main purpose is to make available as much research output of an institution as possible. Technological changes and developments have an impact on search and discovery functionalities. This impact in turn inspires ideas and projects about useful and efficient ways of searching for academic research output. Intute Repository Search is a project that was set up to develop a UK repository search service to support academic activity. It is funded by the JISC and led by MIMAS in partnership with SHERPA and NaCTEM. Intute Repository Search is designed to serve as a showcase for UK research and education. The technological developments in Intute Repository Search operate to reach the project main targets. This paper will discuss these targets and the project & achievements.
