This open source software package, funded by the Mellon Foundation, allows groups or organizations to develop a portal online without making a big investment in technical resources or expertise. The current SPT package features include: a metadata field editor, which allows portal administrators the ability to add, delete, or disable a variety of metadata fields; a Dublin Core compliant metadata field set; cross-field Searching; resource annotations and quality ratings by users; intelligent user agents; suggested resource referrals (recommender system); accessibility for users with disabilities; and RSS channel export."
