Follow the Fox to Renardus: An Academic Subject Gateway Service for Europe
Renardus is a collaborative project of the EU’s Information Society Technologies programme with partners from national libraries, university research and technology centres and subject gateways Europe-wide. Its aim is to build a single search and browse interface to existing qualitycontrolled European subject gateways. The project will investigate related technical, information and organisational issues, build a pilot system and develop a fully-operational broker service. This paper provides an overview of the project, work in progress and anticipated results and outlines the opportunities and benefits for future collaboration in developing the service.
