New PerX documents

Nov 10, 2005 by

From the desk of Roddy MacLeod, friend of EngLib and of all things engineering library-related:
Two PerX (Pilot Engineering Repository Xsearch) Project http://www.icbl.hw.ac.uk/perx/ deliverables are available, and may be of interest:

The Listing builds on such sources as Sarah Kirby’s listing of searchable abstracts in scitech. The purpose of the listing is not to provide a comprehensive list of all worldwide repositories, but is rather an attempt to identify the most significant repositories of relevance to engineering and to provide examples of repositories via type and coverage. Its quite long!

The Analysis reviews the landscape in the area of digital repositories within the subject area of engineering, as identified in the Listing. The document provides a synopsis of the current state of digital repository and metadata repository provision (including obvious gap areas) within engineering related disciplines. It proceeds to discuss various issues concerning repository provision and how they might relate to the provision of an Engineering Repository cross search service.

A RSS feed is also available for news about the PerX project and Engineering Repository Cross Search Demonstrator.

Comments would be greatly appreciated, especially on the Analysis. Comments are to be sent to Roddy.
