This context set was created to address the need for network oriented information retrieval, such as IP addresses, port numbers and protocols. This is intended to be very broad in scope to allow specific needs to be addressed in futher, related, sets. For example, a related context set which exposed more of the Explain data for SRW might also include being able to search by supported indexes and record schemas or supported attribute combinations in Z39.50.
The identifier for the Network context set is: http://srw.cheshire3.org/contextSets/net/1.0/
The recommended prefix for the Network index set is: net
