Notes

Abstract: The U.S. Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded a National Leadership Grant in 2000 to support the research and demonstration project, 'Realizing the Vision of Networked Access to Library Resources: An Applied Research Demonstration Project to Establish and Operate a Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed.' In the project team's December 31, 2003 interim status report on the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (Z-Interop), the project team highlighted the challenges of individual libraries to participate in the Z-Interop testbed and the project team suggested an alternative method for interoperability testing for Z39.50 servers that could accommodate the limitations of individual library systems. In May, 2004, IMLS awarded an extension to the Z-Interop Project for additional research to develop and test an alternative approach for interoperability testing and also awarded approximately $50,000 in additional funding to carry out the research. The project team refers to this extension to the original award as Z-Interop Phase 2 or Z-Interop2. Research during Z-Interop2 built on the conceptual and technical infrastructure developed during the Z-Interop Project.
