Bullet  RDN, the Resource Discovery Network

The Resource Discovery Network, provides effective access to high quality Internet resources for the UK learning and research communities. Over the next couple of years, RDN will develop to provide rich entry points to a full range of Internet, bibliographic, documentary and data resources.

RDN is a co-operative network consisting of a central organisation, the Resource Discovery Network Centre (RDNC) and a number of independent service providers called hubs. 

RDN will be much more than a collection of isolated databases. While each hub maintains its own character and identity, collaboration enables RDN to offer another level of service to users. This will include the opportunity to search for resources across several hubs at the same time. 

RDN is currently freely accessible to all via the Internet. Some services may have restricted access; please consult the relevant hub for more details.
