1. Introduction


The ADAM Project aims to provide a service of improved access to quality-assured resources on the Internet in the subject areas of art, design, architecture and media. This document provides guidelines for defining quality-assurance in such resources. Since the initial draft proposal for selection criteria, this document has been reviewed in the light of the Consultation Phase 1 survey of user needs, and the practical experience so far of the project resource officers.

It is important to note that whilst these guidelines are quite detailed and specific on some points, in practice they cannot be prescriptive. It will always be necessary to exercise discretion and judgement in order to assess the overall quality of a resource.
