SWAPping SWORDs

The recent SUETr survey has turned up some great results, many thanks to all those who took the time to fill it in.

Whilst working through the responses, I noticed a request for more information for SWORD. Jullie Allinson, SWORD project manager, has some useful presentations on her University of York homepage about both SWORD and SWAP. These are very comprehensive and a great way to learn more about the two initiatives. The SWAP presentation is especially useful as it comes with a built-in practical exercise - you'll need a copy of the SWAP application profile documentation and a 'worked example' (1) (2) to go with these.

ran an introduction to SWORD back in January that's well worth a read, particularly if you're new to the subject. The Digirep wiki also has a section on SWORD that includes a couple of demonstration clients and (eventually more than one) case studies.

If you are interested in working with SWORD, there is useful email list: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/sword-app-tech

There's also a presentation at http://cadair.aber.ac.uk/dspace/handle/2160/552 which describes the project and its future (there is now a 'SWORD 2' project) from a slightly more technical angle, which you might like depending on your background.
