The building had four floors, the lower three forming the Library Service and the top floor hosting the Department of Library and Information Studies. Entry to the building was via the third floor (having been built against a hill) and there was a turnstile gate to count the number of visitors.

At the bottom of this form was a section called ‘Index Terms’ and it was made very clear at the outset that mistakes in the abstract were regrettable, but mistakes in indexing were unforgivable.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue73/white" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue73 feature article martin white british library ibm ieee ifla intranet focus ltd jisc oai oclc ukoln university of bath university of sheffield liparm wikipedia application profile archives bibliographic data cloud computing data digital preservation digital repositories dublin core e-science framework frbr higher education interoperability learning object metadata learning objects metadata oai-pmh open archives initiative plain text portal preservation metadata programming language repositories research resource description resource discovery search technology software standards tagging Fri, 13 Feb 2015 14:15:12 +0000 editor 2539 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Internet Librarian International Conference 2014 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue73/ili-2014-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue73/ili-2014-rpt#author1"><u><font color="#0066cc">Zoë Hurley</font></u></a> and <a href="/issue73/ili-2014-rpt#author2"><u><font color="#0066cc">Garth Bradshaw</font></u></a> report on the Internet Librarian Conference, held at the Olympia Conference Centre in London over 20-22 October 2014.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Zoë reports from day one of the conference and Garth reports from day two.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue73/ili-2014-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue73 event report garth bradshaw zoe hurley aberystwyth university bbc british library google imperial college london open university smithsonian institution university of bath university of bristol university of glasgow university of hull university of manchester accessibility aggregation big data cache cataloguing copyright data ebook facebook geospatial data google analytics google scholar graphics higher education metadata mobile multimedia national library open access privacy research resource discovery search technology social networks software video youtube Fri, 13 Feb 2015 14:22:51 +0000 editor 2540 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue73/maclellan-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue73/maclellan-rvw#author1">Fiona MacLellan</a> reviews the third edition of Peggy Johnson’s text focusing on a key area for libraries: collection development.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Collection development is a key skill taught in library schools around the world, it represents one of the <em>business as usual</em> elements in most librarians' roles, certainly in any I have undertaken. Getting your collection development right is a skill that takes lots of practice: like knowing which items to add to enhance your library stock; and which ones to remove to ensure that breadth of collection is not damaged; whilst making the collection inviting and easy to navigate. These aspects form but a small part of the challenge of collection development.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue73/maclellan-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue73 review fiona maclellan american library association sconul university of northampton collection development digitisation open access preservation repositories research Sun, 27 Jul 2014 16:01:05 +0000 lisrw 2535 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
