Abstract
The UK JISC Information Environment Service Registry (IESR) publicises collections of resources along with details of how to access them in a machine-readable format, aiming to assist applications such as metasearch portals to serve their users' interests. The presentation will describe the content of IESR, captured according to a standards-based metadata application profile, and its possible position within the wider information environment sharing resource descriptions. IESR encompasses multiple service types, in both its resource descriptions and its own access interfaces. Consequent service integration issues that have become apparent during the experience of developing IESR will be discussed.
