Study of Subject
Study of Subject (SoS) is a formal methodology to understand a domain in order to be able to provide information resources and services in that domain. SoS includes primary, secondary and tertiary sources of information on a given subject. In addition to the various sources of information, the study also covers all the aspects of Infor- mation sources and products. This would serve as a precursor to the third semester project which expects a student to build a subject gateway.
