D-Lib Magazine June 1998: A Distributed Architecture for Resource Discovery Using Metadata

The Internet Scout Project Research Team, charged with investigating and developing Internet resource discovery tools, has published an article in the June 1998 issue of D-Lib Magazine. The Scout Research Team's first project involves linking geographically distributed metadata collections into one unified, searchable collection. Their article, entitled "A Distributed Architecture for Resource Discovery Using Metadata," discusses an infrastructure "which uses standard Internet protocols, such as the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and the Common Indexing Protocol (CIP), to distribute queries, return results, and exchange index information." It further explains "the advantages of using linked collections of authoritative metadata as an alternative to using a keyword-indexing search-engine for resource discovery."
