Web2Access is a JISC-funded project, whose purpose is to develop practical, pragmatic and relevant toolkits to support the projects funded within the JISC Users and Innovation Programme in their engagement with next generation and Web 2.0 technologies and emerging legal issues, such as IP, libel and accessibility. You may find Web2Rights a useful resource to explore.

There are a number of ways in which these projects will engage with Web 2.0 and the resources created here will be relevant for projects which are:

  • Adapting and deployment of pre-existing tools, technologies and software.
  • Developing new tools, technologies and software.
  • Adapting and using own content.
  • Use of third party created content.

We anticipate that these tools will also be useful for other projects funded by JISC, JISC Programme Managers, organisations represented by the Strategic Content Alliance, the wider Higher and Further education communities, and other organisations engaged with the web.
