BOLD-project in the framework of the programma "Information society, new services connected with Belnet".

Project Details


The general aim of the BOLD (Belgian Online Libraries Directories) project is to build an online distributed directory of Belgian libraries and library organisations accessible via the WWW and based on LDAP technology facilities. Other existing directories are mostly updated irregularly and library resources are not always adequately described. The presence of the WWW offers the opportunity to the Belgian library community to actively present their resources and services to their end users. A directory based on LDAP technology over Internet constitutes an added value. The general characteristics of BOLD are: - a rich datastructure allowing adequate description of a library and its services; - a multilingual user interface; - description of collections using an international accepted classification system; - decentralised and online updating of directory entries; - subject navigation tool; - search options on the main entries of the database.
