The print format is distributed free of charge to various educational and research institutions; for more information on this, contact John MacColl. Ariadne is not available over email, in either mailing list or email digest format; however, people interested in the project can join and participate in <a href="../issue3/elib/">lis-elib</a> , the Electronic Libraries Programme mailing list (Ariadne is a project within this programme).</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/article/changes-ariadne-and-how-read-web-version-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 editorial john kirriemuir elib browser cache graphics research web browser Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 136 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Editorial Introduction to Issue 5 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/editorial <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The editor introduces Ariadne issue 5.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>So why is this issue of the Web version of Ariadne so big, then?</p> <p>…was a question asked by several people who have watched this issue being constructed. 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 JISC Projects Ahead http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/jisc <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue5/jisc#author1">John MacColl</a> outlines some of the key points in JISCÆs five year strategy document.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Liberalisation of the UK Higher Education network, a drive for greater economy and efficiency, and the promotion of training and awareness, all emerge as key recommendations in the <i>Five Year Strategy, 1996-2001</i> published by the Joint Information Systems Committee last month.
