WP4 - Addressing access, use and searchability of secondary data and items
- To make a detailed survey of all data and items available within the project for illustrating the interactive tools
- To agree on common structural standards (exchange formats) and content standards (thesauri)
- To build and continuously update a searchable on-line database which provides common access to easily exchangeable distributed media resources, including interactive keys and eLearning packages
An overview of the partners and their contributions can be found in "Person months in WP 3, 4 and 5".

Resource Metadata collection and repository
Def.: Resource Metadata are searchable descriptions/keywords/URLs of identification tools, images, other media
- Slightly dated: Strategies for collecting resource metadata, WP3/A Wiki for a Community-Based Repository and Registry, OAI-PMH notes, Technical blueprint for metadata repository and search tool
- Publishing reviewed species pages
- Help: How to add resource metadata on the Wiki
- Resource Metadata Exchange Agreement
- FEDORA commons pages:
- General interaction between Wiki and software: Wiki API
- FEDORA commons pages: FEDORA Installation, FEDORA Batch Import
Resource Search Tool
- CLEANUP NECESSARY: Development of a Resource Search Tool and Development of Flash Media Search Tool overlap.
- mediaIBIS, with internal pages:
- Flashmeeting works very well. All WP leaders are bookers and can invite other people. Go to http://flashmeeting.open.ac.uk/mxbooking/ to login and create a booking. Participants can use their video (but don't need to) and a whiteboard and chat area can be used in parallel. Only one person can speak at a time. Sessions are afterwards publicly available.
- Skype works well for chats and phone talks (these also for more than two, video is currently possible only for two participants). Advantage: No scheduling and fixed time, no public recording.
