Abstract
The JISC Information Environment Service Registry (IESR) publicises collections of resources applicable to UK academia, including many relevant to Social Scientists, along with details of how to access them, in a machine-readable format, aiming to assist applications such as portals to serve their users' interests. This paper describes the content of IESR, the metadata scheme used for its capture and the services providing its dissemination. Some possible uses of IESR are suggested, and its position within the information environment, both UK and global, is discussed.
