The language employed by the media to describe events in the online world reflected global concerns about warfare and disease. Viruses, worms and trojan horses 'infected' and 'invaded' international networks, and a 'war' on spam was declared.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/public-libraries" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 regular column penny garrod amazon bbc british library cilip jisc loughborough university microsoft ukoln university of bath jisc information environment archives bibliographic data cataloguing collection development data digitisation e-government e-learning ebook ict identifier infrastructure mobile mp3 operating system privacy rfid sms software uri wiki wireless Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1010 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue37/public-libraries <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue37/public-libraries#author1">Penny Garrod</a> gives her view of day two of the Public Library Authorities Conference 2003</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><em>Question: How many librarians does it take to change a light bulb?<br />Answer: Er,..

Do we want to keep our newspapers? - anyone with an interest in the media, and the power of the press in particular, will want to dip in to this slim illustrated collection to find out what it's all about. Readers will want to know if there is a consensus about the retention of newspapers, why it is an issue, which newspapers are we talking about in this instance, and who is charged with keeping them, or failing to keep them.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue35/garrod-review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue35 review penny garrod british library institute of historical research library of congress ukoln university of cambridge university of london database digitisation research url Tue, 29 Apr 2003 23:00:00 +0000 editor 958 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries: United We Stand http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue33/public-libraries <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue33/public-libraries#author1">Penny Garrod</a> on current developments in the Public Library world.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>As I write schools have closed for summer, the volume of early morning traffic has temporarily subsided, and the tourists are out and about in vast numbers in Bath city centre. The 'out of office' auto-replies drop into the email box daily as proof that some people have managed to unplug themselves from their computers to go on holiday. It is also, alas, the 'silly season' - time for the British media to devote column inches to vital matters - such as the Prime Minister's sartorial taste, and how a certain blue shirt 'brings out the colour of his eyes'.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue33/public-libraries" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue33 regular column penny garrod amazon british library cilip google jisc ukoln university of bath dner jisc information environment sosig archives cataloguing further education higher education html ict licence research url Wed, 09 Oct 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 913 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/pub-libs <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue30/pub-libs#author1">Penny Garrod</a>'s first outing in Ariadne as Public Libraries Focus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>My predecessor, Sarah Ormes, in her final ‘Public Libraries’ column for Ariadne, owned up to having spent five and a half years at UKOLN. Coincidentally, I too have just concluded five and a half years at the University of Plymouth. This led me to speculate, as one does in those brain numbing moments when awaiting yet another delayed train on a drafty platform in grey November (yes, its ‘leaves on the line’ season again folks), whether, after five and a half years in a post, some of us need to regenerate, like ‘Seven of Nine’, the ice maiden in the current Star Trek series -<i>Voyager.</i></p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/pub-libs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue30 regular column penny garrod british library jisc library association ukoln university of plymouth epistle accessibility digital audio digitisation ebook higher education ict research search technology software standards url Fri, 25 Jan 2002 00:00:00 +0000 editor 856 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
