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 The Future of Cataloguing: Cataloguing and Indexing Group Conference http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/cilip-cig-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/cilip-cig-rpt#author1">Paola Stillone</a> reports on a three-day annual conference of the CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group (CIG), held at the University of Bath, 30 June - 2 July.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The conference was aimed at information professionals interested in looking at issues that are changing cataloguing and indexing. The latest international developments in metadata standards, cataloguing codes, taxonomies and controlled languages unlock new opportunities for cataloguers' involvement. They also raise complex interoperability issues which go beyond traditional cataloguing and highlight the need for the acquisition of new skills in the digital information environment.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/cilip-cig-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 event report paola stillone british library cilip ifla jisc leeds metropolitan university library of congress nhs oclc sheffield hallam university ukoln university college london university of bath university of strathclyde cain jisc information environment worldcat aacr2 aggregation archives authority data bibliographic data catalogue index cataloguing content management controlled vocabularies data database digital library e-government framework frbr gif information retrieval internet explorer interoperability isbd marc marc21 metadata research resource description and access schema search technology software standards tagging taxonomy unicode vocabularies web resources xml xml schema Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1067 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 Subject-Based Information Gateways http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue18/subject-gateways <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue18/subject-gateways#author1">Linda Kerr</a> and <a href="/issue18/subject-gateways#author2">Roddy MacLeod</a> attended the recent CEI meeting at the Policy Studies Institute, London.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The JISC Circular 10/98, issued in August, invited full proposals and expressions of interest from institutions and/or consortia interested in participating in the development and extension of the work of the Subject Based Information Gateway (SBIG) projects, which are part of the Access to Network Resources (ANR) programme area of eLib.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue18/subject-gateways" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue18 feature article linda kerr roddy macleod ahds jisc cain eevl elib niss sosig data digital library dublin core higher education interoperability resource discovery subject gateway z39.50 Sat, 19 Dec 1998 00:00:00 +0000 editor 564 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Down Your Way: University of Ulster, Coleraine http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue13/down-your-way <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue13/down-your-way#author1">Isobel Stark</a> investigates University of Ulster, Coleraine.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>THE VIEW, DOWN THE VALLEY and towards the mouth of the River Bann, from the Central Library of the Coleraine campus of the University of Ulster, is seriously distracting.
