CELLAR – A service enabler 9 On-line access Provide on-line access through the Internet portals of the Publications Office. Automated access Provide suitable interfaces for access by automated agents. External indexing Enable indexing by Internet search engines. Notification Provide configurable notification services (RSS- feeds…). Downloading Support sporadic and regular downloading of resources (subscription). Regular downloading should be configurable. Specific formats Provide formats, which are not natively available in the CELLAR (LegisWrite, ONIX notices…), i.e. transformation services. Deep linking Enable external referencing of resources and guarantee persistence of links over time.
