Introducing Tools and Standards that Power the National Science Digital Library (NSDL)
Ithaca, NY A new web site provides easy-to-use access to the tools and standards that power the NSDL. The NCore (http://ncore.nsdl.org) next-generation, open source digital library framework based on Fedora Commons open source repository software provide users, developers, information managers and decision-makers with systems for description, organization, interrelation, and annotation of resources. Other tools and services support the creation, organization, and indexing of resource references and metadata in the library. Together NCore tools for discovery, creation and organization form a dynamic information layer on top of library resources and metadata.
