Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend to friendSend to friend

Philip Hunter and Isobel Stark present the editorial introduction for the web version of Ariadne 13.

In this edition of the Web version of Ariadne there are two "at the event" reports: one from Lisa Gray of OMNI, looking at the Online 97 exhibition in Olympia in December from the biomedical perspective. Philip Hunter reports from a European Library Telematics conference held in Warsaw under the auspices of the local FEMIRC in the first week of December.

Among the regular columns Brian Kelly outlines the benefits of associate membership of The World Wide Web Consortium (W3c) in his Web Focus corner. Professor Charles Oppenheim answers more copyright queries in his Copyright Corner column. Sarah Ormes reviews the online reference query service run by the EARL consortium which she reports had a start up cost of around forty pounds in Public Libraries Corner. The current Planet SOSIG features an article by Heather Dawson on the editing of the Politics Section of the database. A new feature of the online version of Ariadne is our jargon-busting What Is...? column. The first column is by Glen Monks who gives a sys-admin's view of Intranets.

Also checkout Newsline, which carries news and reports on current and future events. This month you can find details of the upcoming UKOLN conference (Summer 1998), an item on the foundation of a new governmental strategy group concerned with copyright regulations and database rights, together with a notice of the new database regulations which came into force on the 1st January 1998.
