Tying everything together at UiB

The restructuring of the University of Bergen web site required good arguments for bringing everything together in a single content management system, with a uniform graphical profile and information architecture.

The possibility offered by Topic Maps of building connections across all our activities in research, education and outreach, across organizational boundaries and between all the people involved in our the system became an important motivating factor in the process.

But, as always, the art of self-limitation applies. UiB has started with a small number of relationship types that provide a foundation for an ever-improving presentation of UiBs multifarious activities.

The new web site at the University of Bergen is based on Topic Maps and the Open Source content management tool ZTM.
