Community & Business Groups

Organisation Profile Documents Community Group

The aim of this group is to explore and develop a set of specifications for Organisational Profile Documents (OPDs). In particular we are interested in the usefulness of a machine readable OPD for the automatic discovery of resources in UK higher education institutions. Possible outcomes of the project would be: · Produce a specification for OPD · Create the documentation/supporting materials for OPDs · Promote the OPD to new organisations There is some support/resource from a UKHE funded project, data.ac.uk, more information on OPDs http://opd.data.ac.uk

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.
