Abstract or description

The Performing Arts Data Service (PADS) aims to support research and
teaching in UK Higher Education by collecting and promoting the use of digital
data relating to the performing arts: music, film, broadcast arts, theatre, dance.
The PADS is one of 5 service providers of the Arts and Humanities Data
Service (AHDS) which will provide a single gateway for arts and humanities
scholars wishing to search for datasets across various discipline areas. Data is
indexed with Dublin Core metadata, will interoperate with other databases
within the AHDS and beyond using Z39.50, and will be available via the Web.
The diversity of data with which the PADS must deal is a major issue, and any
information system for such a service must support text based, visual/image,
time-based and complex data, and offer appropriate access over wide area
networks. This paper focuses on the system requirements of such a system and
briefly describes one implementation of those requirements.
