In 'Blogging and RSS: A Librarian's Guide', Michael Sauers does exactly that and pitches directly to a specific audience.

It has never been easier to access scholarly information from anywhere in the world in real time. However, this information is often held in disparate systems and is protected by a variety of access control mechanisms, such as usernames and passwords.

In many cases, this information is held on different systems, available via widely differing levels of access control, ranging from open to strictly controlled access. Access controls are also subject to data protection legislation and/or tough licensing conditions. One way of overcoming the problem of accessing information from various systems is to build Web portals. These can provide a superficial environment for the presentation of information from various sources.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue42/shibboleth-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue42 event report james sankar masha garibyan jisc london school of economics ukerna perseus access control authentication data ejournal further education identifier infrastructure jstor open source portal privacy research shibboleth software web portal Sun, 30 Jan 2005 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1123 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Cultural Heritage Language Technologies: Building an Infrastructure for Collaborative Digital Libraries in the Humanities http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue34/rydberg-cox <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue34/rydberg-cox#author1">Jeffrey Rydberg-Cox</a> describes the work of the Cultural Heritage Language Technologies consortium, a research group funded by the European Comission Information Society Technologies program and the United States National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The field of classics has a long tradition of electronic editions of both primary and secondary materials for the study of the ancient world.
