SWORD now has a wikipedia entry!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWORD_(Protocol)

The page does not have much detail on at the moment, so if you have a minute or two, please take a look at the page, and see if you could add / edit / correct / improve / enhance the page.  If you know of any other entries that should link to or reference the SWORD entry, please could you add those in too.

If you have any SWORD-related content or links that you would like to be added to this site (links to implementations, code, documentation, blog entries, papers) please pass them on to info@swordapp.org and we’ll get them added.

As part of the development of SWORD v2 a Technical Advisory Panel has been formed.  This panel consists of experts from across the SWORD and general Digital Repository domains, along with experts in related fields. The purpose of the panel is to ensure that the standard develops in a way that meets the needs of its user community, that it exhibits best-practice in the area of Internet standards, that developers are able to work with it, and that it tries to be generic enough to allow interoperability with other types of systems whilst maintaining its focus on repository resource deposit.  The panel consists of people from universities, national libraries, research funders, commercial companies, developers, repository domain experts, and repository managers.

The following people have generously donated their time and expertise to be on this panel:

  • Julie Allinson (The University of York)
