Legislation at national and international levels increasingly mandate conformance with such guidelines.

This is especially true of books published in the USA, a country which has quite limited Federal legislation on the need to implement accessible Web sites and intranets. It is a subject that should be of passionate interest to our profession in its commitment to providing access to information to all who request it. We not only have a duty under legislation to provide accessible access but, as the back cover of the book highlights, also a moral duty.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue56/white-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue56 review martin white cerlim intranet focus ltd jisc jisc techdis manchester metropolitan university microsoft rnib ukoln university of bath university of dundee university of southampton web accessibility initiative accessibility bibliographic data content management cookie digital media html intranet microsoft office research search technology sharepoint software standards web resources Tue, 29 Jul 2008 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1426 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Rustle of Digital Curation: The JISC Annual Conference http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/jisc-conf-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue47/jisc-conf-rpt#author1">Julie Allinson</a>, <a href="/issue47/jisc-conf-rpt#author2">Marieke Guy</a> and <a href="/issue47/jisc-conf-rpt#author3">Maureen Pennock</a> find themselves contemplating e-frameworks, digital curation and repositories at the JISC Annual Conference.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>On 14 March 2006 we found ourselves back at the Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC) for the 2006 JISC Conference.

Even the most urbane Chinese scholars lived at such proximity to nature that the universality of change - in the seasons, in growth and decay and, of course, in the affairs of the court - could not be ignored.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue1/john" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue1 odds and ends john burnside university of dundee Fri, 19 Jan 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 43 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
