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
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.
