Slide 5:

Shared Premises

*In OCLC Perceptions of Library and Information Resources, it was reported that 84% of public began search using search engines; only 1% began with online databases. Thus a "Google-like" easy search of authoritative sources with relevant results was desired.

 Guiding Principles for Content. Link to larger image.

Slide 7: Guiding Principles for Content

√ Select authoritative web-based government-sponsored information resources
√ Rich science content, not merely organization pages
√ Databases contain primarily R&D results in the form of STI (bibliographic data and/or full documents)
√ Supplemented by websites for currency
√ Only freely available content that is well maintained
√ Our audience is "the science-attentive citizen"!

Total Membership Funds Are Combined into One "Pot"

CENDI Reserve

Executive Secretariat for CENDI Includes Science.gov Support

Maintenance Costs include Alliance Only dues*

A portion of Secretariat effort is used for Science.gov Tasks

*Science.gov Alliance Only dues are deposited into the CENDI treasury, with option of being used for direct costs/purchases for Science.gov (such as exhibit expenses) or being included in funding for overall Secretariat support of Science.gov.

Content Management Is Distributed. Link to larger image.

Slide 14: Content Management Is Distributed

The Alliance Members' Page. Link to larger image.

Slide 15: The Alliance Members' Page

Provides administrative information, meeting minutes, usage statistics, content selection and cataloging guidelines, subject category information, and outreach materials such as presentations and flyers.

Metadata Input System: For Websites in Searchable Index ("Surface Web" portion of Science.gov). Link to larger image.

Slide 16: Metadata Input System: For Websites in Searchable Index ("Surface Web" portion of Science.gov)

Provides Alliance members and content managers a secure tool to quickly retrieve Agency metadata, add or edit resource records, and expedite the maintenance and quality control of the metadata and URLs.
