Service (from <http://prospero.ahds.ac.uk:8080/ahds_live/>)

Although still a prototype service, the Gateway demonstrates=20
exciting possibilities for discovering and acquiring access to=20
quality information resources irrespective of where they=20
are located and how or by whom they are managed.

The Gateway service is based upon the AHDS's use of two=20
emerging standards: the Dublin Core, and the Z39.50 network=20
applications protocol.=20

The AHDS wishes to take this opportunity to thank the many=20
individuals and organisations who have been involved in helping=20
it to define implementations of the Dublin Core, develop=20
an appropriate information architecture and Z39.50 enabled=20
systems. It wishes in particular to thank the staff of:

- Fretwell Downing Informatics
- Indexdata
- Systems Simulation
- the UK Office for Library and Information Networking
- and participants in the Cheshire project

The AHDS is interested in your feedback on any aspect of the=20
