Joint Information Systems Committee
This session will provide an overview of the programs funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) on behalf of the education community in the UK. The discussion will focus on how funded activities — both planned and already underway — will contribute to transforming the processes of learning, teaching and research by providing solutions to issues of resource discovery, access, delivery, and re-use of digital resources. The cross-searching of distributed resources, integration of digital resources within learning, and institutional environments will be discussed. The session will be illustrated with examples of funded projects active in the area to give an idea of the depth and breadth of development activity underway.
