JAFER Toolkit Project
Copyright (c) 2000 Oxford University Libraries Automation Service
Abstract: Java Access For Electronic Resources. JAFER will be written in Java, and will be modular and OpenSource. It will take account of emerging technologies from the library and information section as well as those from the World Wide Web consortium and the XML communities. It is intended to work closely with the other DNER projects as well as International initiatives such as the Advanced Search Framework, which may become a standard component of major Linux distributions. Within Oxford the project will work closely with the University Libraries System Services including the newly formed Digital Library Service, the Humanities Computing Development Team, Department of Continuing Education and with various initiatives to expand the use of IT and information services within the University''s teaching structure.
