About this website

The Technical Foundations Web site provides an overview and synthesis of cutting edge developments in information science in the UK HE sector.

It aimed to serve research managers, researchers, early adopters, developers and the UK HE sector as a whole from a technical perspective, by bringing together disparate sources of information from across the Web and providing an introduction to those areas, including a variety of views and perspectives from those who had already engaged with these technologies. The intention was to create a resource to bring a wealth of experience to people who needed to use it, saving time and expense by helping implementers to avoid mistakes that had already been identified by giving them them a sound basis upon which to make rapid technical innovations into the future.

Development of the site and content ceased because of the withdrawal of JISC funding for the Information Support Centre at UKOLN from August 2013, which was announced in October 2012.
