Well, I guess it’s official now. The best academic web-curation service is to have funding for record creation and updating completely withdrawn, and will be left to rot…

We regret to inform our users and contributors that JISC has announced that its funding for Intute will be cut with effect from August 2010. […] Our current service level will be maintained until 1 August 2010. After this date, Intute will still be available but with minimal maintenance.

I suppose we should be thankful that there’ll still be a few techies to keep the servers alive.
