Dear all,

As the chair of the first Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS) 
working-group [1], it is a great pleasure to inform you that the European 
Commission has launched a new, and innovative, online service, based on 
ADMS (vocabulary to describe ICT specifications in RDF or XML). This 
service makes it easier to find ICT specifications that have been used to 
develop information systems. More than 1300 specifications from 16 
participating organisations (W3C, GS1, Xrepository, etc) are now 
accessible and searchable through the European Commission Joinup Portal:
http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/catalogue/all
Both ADMS and the search service were developed with the support of the 
ISA Programme [2], the European Commission?s programme to foster 
interoperability, sharing and re-use between public administrations.
ADMS was recently published by W3C?s Government Linked Data (GLD) Working 
Group as a First Public Working Draft [3]. We would like to thank everyone 
who contributed to the ADMS specification and its adoption across the EU.
