The Joint Information Systems Committee is delighted to
announce the successful bids under the Focus on Access
to Institutional Resources (FAIR) call for proposals.
Fourteen projects will begin work in August; they comprise
partnerships between more than 50 institutions and teams
and involve universities, libraries, JISC services, art
galleries, colleges, museums and commercial companies.

The FAIR programme will contribute to developing the
mechanisms and supporting services to allow the submission
and sharing of content generated by the HE/FE community.
Projects are clustered around the core areas of Museums and
Images, E-Prints, E-Theses, Intellectual Property Rights
and Institutional Portals. The 5 clusters will be managed
by the JISC Development Team and the new FAIR Advisory
Board (FAB).

For details of the successful projects and the consortia
who will be running them, please go to:
