Web Editorial: Introduction to Issue 11

The Web editor, Isobel Stark, introduces Ariadne issue 11.

This is my first attempt at editing an issue of Ariadne, the Web Version. I hope you find it up to stratch!

Unsurprisingly, as this is the first issue since the long vacation, this issue is particularly strong in conference reports in the At The Event section. Thanks to Christine Dugdale and Jackie Chelin there is even a report from Libtech ‘97, which has only just finished as I write this editorial. The other conferences reports have a definite international flavour, ranging from Bournemouth to Philadelphia and cover a broad swipe of topics in electronic library context.

Another theme of this issue is cataloguing and presenting electronic journals and on-line resources. Reports of progress to date from the universities of York and Birmingham are complimented by Valarie Wilkin’s survey on the state of cataloguing e-journals in the HE sector libraries.

Of course, we still have all the usual regular columns, including a new column by Professor Charles Oppenheim answering your copyright queries. If you want to submit a question for this column, please email your queries to ariadne@ukoln.ac.uk.

All it remains for me to do is to wish you Happy Reading!
