To help set the history of the gateways in the wider context of the resource discovery landscape in the last decade or so, readers are encouraged to refer to Lorcan Dempsey's recent article on the development of digital libraries [<a href="#2">2</a>].</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/hiom" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue47 feature article debra hiom ahrc british library hea heriot-watt university ilrt intute jisc kings college london ukoln university of bath university of birmingham university of bristol university of hull university of london university of manchester university of oxford university of reading university of surrey bril cain dner eevl elib ihr-info jisc information environment sosig subject portals project aggregation application profile archives cache cataloguing database digital library digitisation dublin core framework ftp further education higher education interoperability lom metadata portal research resource discovery search technology software standards subject gateway vocabularies web resources z39.50 Sat, 29 Apr 2006 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1229 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Web Watch: WebWatching eLib Project Web Sites http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/web-watch <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/web-watch#author1">Brian Kelly</a> is WebWatching the eLib Project Sites.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This issue of Ariadne has the theme of eLib Projects. It is therefore timely for the regular WebWatch column to survey eLib project Web sites.</p> <p>The aim of the survey is to use a number of Web-based tools to provide information on the entry points for eLib project Web sites and the Web sites themselves. The findings may be of interest to the eLib projects themselves and users of eLib projects. Perhaps more importantly, the findings may be of interest to new JISC-funded programmes.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/web-watch" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 tooled up brian kelly alt google jisc microsoft ukoln university of bath acorn agora cain digimap eevl elib heron ihr-info midrib seren sosig accessibility apache browser data digital preservation digitisation dissemination dtd flash html linux operating system preservation research resource discovery search technology software solaris url web services windows xhtml Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 761 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The History of History http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue12/ihr-info <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue12/ihr-info#author1">Stephen Smith</a> explains the background to the relaunch of IHR-Info as HISTORY.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue12/ihr-info" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue12 project update stephen smith british library ibm institute of historical research jisc university of london elib ihr-info archives bibliographic data browser data data set further education higher education information society metadata research resource discovery search technology telnet Wed, 19 Nov 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 414 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Launch of History http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue12/history <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue12/history#author1">Isobel Stark</a> reports on the re-launch of IHR-Info as History.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>On a crisp All Hallows Eve, I found myself in London at the launch if History <a href="#1">[1]</a>, the revamped and expanded ANR service <a href="#2">[2]</a> provided by the Institute of Historical Research (IHR) at the University of London.</p> <p>The launch was more than just an excuse for tea and scones - there were five speakers and stands and demonstrations from related bodies, such as the Public Record Office at Kew <a href="#3">[3]</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue12/history" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue12 event report isobel stark institute of historical research university of london elib ihr-info data database e-learning research Wed, 19 Nov 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 429 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk OMNI Seminar http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue7/omni-seminar <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue7/omni-seminar#author1">Debra Hiom</a> reports from the second annual OMNI seminar.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Over 150 people gathered at the Wellcome Institute in London on the 23 January to attend the 2nd Annual OMNI <a href="#fn1">[1]</a> Seminar.
