Summary of contents:
HILTIV has produced a number of service demostrators examining “cross-searching multi-subject scheme information environments”. The demonstration aspect of their work is that the mapppings being used are of selected sections of vocabularl schema.

They have a:


They have also embedded the demostrator service within BUBL (an catalogue of resources relating to Library and Information Sciences) http://bubl.ac.uk/hilt4.htm
They have also created some form of client for OCLC http://linuxserv.cdlr.strath.ac.uk/~anuj/cgi-bin/hilt4/oclc_client.cgi

Project – HILT Phase IV

High-Level Thesaurus (Phase IV)

Short Project Name: HILT IV

Programme Name: Repositories and Preservation Programme

Strand: Shared Infrastructure Services

Brief project description:
Pilot terminology service to assist users of the IE with the discovery of the appropriate resources by subject browse and search.

“‘HILT phase IV: Transition to Service Testbed and Future Requirements Study’ aims to research, investigate and develop pilot solutions for problems pertaining to cross-searching multi-subject scheme information environments, as well as providing a variety of other terminological searching aids.

HILT phase IV will build on the work of phase III by moving HILT to a transition to service phase. This will allow an initial entry-level service to be built, tested for user requirements and retrieval effectiveness, refined in line with the findings, and extended to permit the use of a range of distributed terminology services for interoperability. It will also allow an examination of the level of need and interest amongst JISC services in respect of an operational service and, if appropriate, a scoping of the costs and requirements of a future operational phase of the service.

HILT phase IV will also conduct a parallel programme of research into selected topics germane to terminology services, as well research into the costs and requirements of an initial entry-level operational service and any future extension of this. ”

Contact Name and Role: ?? probably Charles Oppenheim/ Steve Proberts in first instance

Brief project description:
“The Registry of Electronic Licences (RELI) project aims to to establish the user requirements for a Licence Registry able to integrate with the JISC Information Environment. It also aims to design, build, deploy and test a pilot based on the requirements. The Registry will enable key elements of licences to be made available so that a user can be provided with licence information at the point of use without additional human intervention. A licence registry is an essential element in the technical architecture necessary to support such functionality.”
