Gateway of JISC resources – http://www.jisc-content.ac.uk/

The web interface http://www.jisc-content.ac.uk/ which has recently been set up to provide a more user friendly way of navigating the content that JISC funding has helped made available to the HE and FE communities.

The site is not aiming to give item level access to each collection, i.e. it is not a federated search in the manner of Europeana. Rather it is a gateway that provides an brief descriptions of each collection, and offers users different, and hopefully, engaging ways to browse through these descriptions, and learn more about what is on offer.

The content currently includes material licensed by JISC Collections (http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/) and material digitised via the two phases of the Digitisation Programme, the Enriching Digital Resources strand, and the first phase of the JISC – NEH (National Endowment for Humanities) Transatlantic work. Information from the current community content programme will be added when projects come online

The plan is to update the site over time, and particular to make some changes in response to feedback gathered over the next month or so. If you have feedback, modifications etc. then please send it to collections@jisc.ac.uk
