ANDS held a Data Capture Briefing in Melbourne on 2 Sep 2010. It was great to see some of the other projects in progress, and that Tardis is a potential platform for some of those projects.
There was also updates on RIF-CS, with version 1.2 coming soon. The updated Service definitions should better meet the MeCAT project requirements.
One aspect that I think needs further thought in RIF-CS is Party lookup. When making entries available for harvesting, Tardis should connect researchers with the collections they were involved with. The lack of reliable automated Party lookup makes this difficult to guarantee.
