2 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Quality-controlled subject gateways Internet resources for higher education and research Selection and collection development - human intellectual effort, documented selection criteria, collection development policy Collection management - maintaining or improving the quality of collection, maintenance policy Resource description - fixed and documented metadata set, well-defined semantic fields (structured searching) Subject classification - indexed by controlled subject classification scheme or thesauri (subject browsing)

3 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus broker A pilot European subject gateway broker service Integrated cross-searching and cross-browsing of distributed resource collections Operates across existing large-scale subject gateways Demonstration of adding one new subject gateway Collaboration of national initiatives Improved access to scientific and cultural resources at existing academic subject gateways Sustainable and improved level of quality in resource discovery

4 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus administrative details Started in January 2000 Duration: 30 months (until June 2002) Project is funded through the Information Society Technologies (IST) Programme Promoting a User- friendly Information Society. This is a major theme of the European Unions 5th Framework Programme Total cost: European project with 12 partners in 7 countries: Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom Total effort: 297 person months

8 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus research End-user and gateway requirements for and benefits from a broker service Metadata and classification standards and conversion Economies of scale, metadata interoperability and sharing between subject gateways Technical solutions, standards, protocols and tools for distributed searching and browsing Multi-linguality on interface and description levels Impact on intellectual property rights and ownership Organisational and business models for a large scale collaborative service

9 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus timeline Work finished Evaluation of existing broker systems and data models End-user and service provider requirements for a broker Scoping (pilot scope, service scope) Functional requirements for the broker and data model Evaluation of technical standards and protocols Business issues impacting functional model Web site, newsletter

10 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus timeline Work in progress Initial architectural model Initial data model Prototype specifications Technical requirements for the participants Organisational model Report on potential participants User guidelines on interoperability

11 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information Renardus timeline Work to be done Prototype pilot system Data interoperability (metadata sharing, multilinguality etc.) Documentation and technical reporting Verification and evaluation Final architectural model Operational Renardus pilot system Business models and sustainability of a central service

12 06/02/2014 NORDUnet 2000 : Renardus – The Clever Route to Information End-user and service provider requirements Distributed architecture Dublin Core semantics and RDF/XML syntax for records Multilingual interface Search options: subject, language and original gateway Cross-browsing by subject Notification of new resources (user profiles) Collecting use statistics Identify the original gateway
