Bentham also promoted the idea of political economy as the greatest good for the greatest number. Drawing on his terminology as the basis for this article, I therefore propose the new term 'infopolecon' to describe the political economy of information.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/lindsay" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 feature article john lindsay british library edina jisc kingston university microsoft ncsa sconul ucisa ukerna acorn elib niss browser cataloguing cd-rom copyright data data set database digital library digitisation higher education html infrastructure licence multimedia passwords rae research search technology standardisation url z39.50 Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 192 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk SOSIG: Training to Support Social Science Teaching and Research http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/sosig <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/sosig#author1">Lesly Huxley</a>, the SOSIG Documentation and Training Officer, describes the workshops that SOSIG, one of the projects from the Access to Network Resource section, run.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Meeting_end_users-_needs">Meeting end users' needs</h3> <p>Although the 'bread and butter' end user <a href="#workshops">workshops </a>in the <i>Internet for Social Scientists</i> portfolio are aimed at less-experienced netusers there are fewer absolute beginners now than there used to be.

In between it has to be captured in digital form and described so that it can be retrieved.
