Linking researchers and information

The University of Reading has a large number of important repositories of archival data and collections of useful information. This project will create a unified system that provides a single virtual interface for searching across all the repositories and collections, this will not only make the data and information more readily available, and also ensure that all the resources that need to be accessed will be easy to find and interact with. Within this project we will also integrate a social network for researchers within the University of Reading that will show that such a system can help researchers get to know each other, enable collaboration and ensure that it is possible to work more closely together on cross-disciplinary projects.
