spacer About PORTAL

Academic Services Interactive Media at the University of Hull, working in partnership with UKOLN, was successful in bidding to the Joint Information Systems Committee's (JISC) call for proposals under the FAIR Programme. The project, Presenting natiOnal Resources To Audiences Locally (PORTAL), will run over 18 months, and is funded to explore issues around the deployment and use of portals within the higher and further education community. It has the potential to play an important role in shaping the JISC’s thinking on portals and their growing place in both the national and institutional information landscapes.

As well as exploring the surfacing of institutional content, a key aspect of PORTAL is the integration of external resources - such as those provided within the JISC’s Information Environment. The project will be working closely with the Resource Discovery Network (RDN) and will also seek to build relationships with other JISC services and external content providers.

The PORTAL project is closely aligned to the University of Hull’s ongoing Digital University Project. Further, the project will enable the wider community to benefit from work on the issues surrounding the implementation of portals and the integration of information resources.

An overview of the project work packages is included in the project bid and current progress will be documented through the project news pages. The project will engage with the relevant communities and disseminate its results both nationally and internationally.

The project commenced on 1 September 2002, and is currently managed by Ian Dolphin.

The project team comprises

Rosemary Russell – Project Researcher

Lee Chamberlain  – Project Developer
