The IMesh Toolkit project was funded under the NSF/JISC
International Digital Libraries Initiative. The project was funded for
a period of three years from September 1999.
The IMesh Toolkit project evolved out of discussions within
the IMesh community which was set up to encourage international
collaboration amongst subject gateways. More information on IMesh
can be found on the IMesh homepage or the JISC web page for the project.
The project will build on existing subject gateway software to
develop a configurable, reusable and extensible toolkit for
subject gateway providers. A complementary research strand will
consider issues of relevance in the distributed, international
subject gateway environment, including metadata sharing and
reuse. The toolkit will support the research activity and the
research activity will guide the development of the toolkit.
