DISCO: Extensible Web resource DISCOvery, registration and interoperation framework
DISCO is an information integration approach designed to facilitate interoperation among Internet resources. It consists of a set of tools and services that allows resource providers who maintain information to share it with automated systems such as NIF. NIF is then able to "harvest" the information and keep those sets of information up-to-date.
To edit or add to the Main file, for example, select the [Edit] button corresponding to it under DISCO Services. Make changes and then generate a new DISCO Main file by clicking on the [Generate DISCO file] button at the bottom of the page. Replace your old file in your resource's root directory with the new one.
In general, where there is a [View] button you may view script information and where there is an [Edit] button, you may edit.
You may view, change or set your crawl frequency, although you will need an account to do this.
For more information, please contact the NIF interoperability team.
