Abstract

Description of the Scottish Collections Network (SCONE) service, a component of the Scottish Common Information Environment that is used to find and display collection-level descriptions (metadata about collections as a whole) of archive, library and museum collections in Scotland. An important function of SCONE is to "landscape" collections when searching for items by location, subject, or educational level. Landscaping involves identifying collections and their online finding-aids (including catalogues) which are likely to contain items of interest, before carrying out more specific searches using local retrieval interfaces or relevant "union" catalogues.
