Site Mission: 

Since 1994, the Internet Scout Research Group (Scout) has focused on developing better tools and services for finding, filtering, and presenting online information and metadata.

Located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison's campus, and part of the University's College of Letters and Sciences, Scout has access to highly educated content specialists and a world-class array of computer science and library resources. Our eclectic staff blends academics and professionals from Library Science and Computer Science, along with graduate and undergraduate students studying the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Scout has developed and maintains a Drupal synchronization plugin for its open source CWIS digital library software package, and the main Scout site uses a combination of Drupal (for the main content) and CWIS (for the Scout Archives).
