By the middle of April 2011 we had 550 collection level descriptions in the MME from 13 of the 16 organisations involved in the initial project. There are many interesting collections which should intrigue the research community and the site is already generating interest following this article by Seb Chan on his FRESH + NEW (ER) Blog.
The next steps are finalising the XML feed into the site and the feed from the MME into the Research Data Commons.
Planning is underway for the evaluation of the site by the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences researchers. These evaluation workshops are being co-ordinatored by the Steering Committee and the results will be reported on this site.
