Wrappers 2 project update

The JISC funded ‘Wrappers 2’ project, led by The Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge, recently completed its consultation activities with University Museum staff and users to look at issues for the resource discovery of University Museum collections, as part of the ‘Discovery’ programme (http://discovery.ac.uk/).

The consultation included online surveys and a Q&A session at the UMG conference.  Issues such as the scope of UK University Museum ‘collections’ data; terms of use for this kind of data; and potential features and audiences for new search-services are covered.

The findings should be of interest across the University Museum sector and can be found and commented on at: http://contextualwrappers2.wordpress.com/2012/02/13/consultation-findings/.
