Meeting Notes

ITST Updates
1. Mandolin server at UoA still down; but a simple parser for DC-RDF has been tested offline
2. The backend as is now returns full rendering of RDF of all the collection records. However, the RDF is getting very heavy and complicated and requires additional RDF tools for parsing/extracting DC metadata. Since the first prototype is displaying only DC metadata, shouldn't the RDF be simplified and include only DC-RDF so that no additional RDF tools are required for parsing the search results?

Thesis Work
1. First draft of chapter outline, timeline, and selective bibliography available
2. Next milestone: thesis proposal ready by August 25, 2006.
