The answer is, in one word, "awareness" (Ariadne does reside in the <a href="http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/elib/lists/ta.html">Training and Awareness</a> section of the eLib programme). In a possibly noticeable change of direction, the Web version of Ariadne (WVA for short) will have a significantly heavier bias towards making its target audience aware of relevant and useful services and resources.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 editorial john kirriemuir british library d-lib magazine jisc ukerna ukoln elib browser copyright data dublin core metadata provenance research search technology web browser Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 137 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Libtech 96 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/libtech <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue5/libtech#author1">John Kirriemuir</a> and <a href="/issue5/libtech#author2">Isobel Stark</a> with some notes and pictures from the main annual UK library exhibition: Libtech 96.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://ariadne-media.ukoln.info/grfx/img/issue5-libtech/bids-big.gif"> </a><img align="left" alt="At the BIDS stand" border="0" src="http://ariadne-media.ukoln.info/grfx/img/issue5-libtech/bids.gif" /> The exhibition was opened on the 4th of September by Jack Schofield, the editor of the online section of the Guardian newspaper.
