It connects the main actors in cultural and scientific heritage in order to build networks and establish future collaborations. The Europeana Open Culture 2010 Conference [<a href="#1">1</a>] was the third annual conference and the biggest so far. It focused on how the cultural institutions can create public value by making digital, cultural and scientific information openly available.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue65/open-culture-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue65 event report david fuegi monika elbert bbc british museum google europeana wikipedia aggregation archives authentication blog copyright creative commons data database digital library digitisation dissemination flickr framework geospatial data gis google books information society intellectual property linked data metadata open access open data open source portal provenance semantic web standards video web 2.0 Fri, 29 Oct 2010 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1594 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk CIG Conference 2010: Changes in Cataloguing in 'Interesting Times' http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue65/cig-2010-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue65/cig-2010-rpt#author1">Rhiannon McLoughlin</a> reports on a three-day conference on cataloguing in a time of financial stringency, held by the CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group at Exeter University, from 13-15 September 2010.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The focus of this conference was initiatives to get through the current economic climate. Cataloguing departments are under threat of cutbacks as never before. Papers on streamlining, collaborative enterprises, shared catalogues and services, recycling and repurposing of content using metadata extraction techniques combined to give a flavour of the new thrift driving management. The continuing progress of the long awaited Resource Description and Access (RDA)[<a href="#1">1</a>][<a href="#2">2</a>] towards becoming the new international cataloguing standard was another hot topic.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue65/cig-2010-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue65 event report rhiannon mcloughlin british library british museum cilip google ifla jisc leeds metropolitan university library of congress mla research information network sconul ukoln university of aberdeen university of exeter university of leeds university of strathclyde university of warwick aacr2 aggregation archives bibliographic data blog cataloguing cidoc-crm crm data data management digital repositories digitisation ebook frbr google search higher education lcsh learning object metadata learning objects lom marc marc21 metadata ontologies open data open source repositories research resource description and access resource discovery resource sharing schema search technology semantic web software standards vle wiki xml Fri, 29 Oct 2010 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1595 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Introductory Concepts in Information Science http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue65/oppenheim-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue65/oppenheim-rvw#author1">Charles Oppenheim</a> takes a look at an introduction to Information Science but fails to be impressed.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>With a title like that, one would expect a primer, introducing all the key concepts of information science to someone studying the topic for the first time at undergraduate or Masters' level, and possibly for the interested layman.

David Flanders (JISC) and Ben O'Steen (Oxford University Library Services) over the years have attended many conferences: what they found were that the places and talks from which they benefited most were outside the programmed seminars and presentations. It was during conversations between sessions at these events with other developers, managers, delegates that they felt learned most.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/jisc-dev8d-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue58 event report julian cheal bbc british museum jisc microsoft open university ukoln university of bath university of liverpool university of oxford university of southern queensland blog data dspace eprints fedora commons firefox higher education interoperability json open source programming language python repositories rss screencast search technology software twitter url video youtube Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1456 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: The Cambridge History of Libraries in Britain and Ireland http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue53/maccoll-dempsey-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue53/maccoll-dempsey-rvw#author1">Lorcan Dempsey</a> reviews Volume III of a landmark collection on the history of libraries in 'Britain and Ireland' from 1850 to 2000.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>First, a note about this reviewer. I am not a library historian although I am interested in our professional and institutional development. I received my library education in Ireland, although I have worked for much of my career in the UK and am now in the US. I observed the developments discussed in the latter parts of this volume and have contributed to the literature about them. I have met many of the contributors and am familiar with the writings of others.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue53/maccoll-dempsey-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue53 review lorcan dempsey amazon british library british museum cilip google jisc leeds metropolitan university national library of wales oclc queens university belfast university college dublin university of london university of nottingham archives bibliographic data cataloguing copac curation data digitisation higher education identifier information society infrastructure itunes national library repositories research resource sharing search technology Tue, 30 Oct 2007 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1359 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk News and Events http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/newsline <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Ariadne presents a brief summary of news and events.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a name="headlines"></a><a name="events1"></a></p> <h3 id="Introduction_to_Federated_Searching_Technology_and_Developments">Introduction to Federated Searching Technology &amp; Developments</h3> <p>Date: 11 May 2007<br />Venue: Conference Room, Southport College, Mornington Road, Southport, PR9 0TT<br />Delegate Fee: £50.00</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/newsline" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 news and events richard waller ahrc amazon british library british museum cerlim cilip edge hill university google imperial college london jisc kings college london microsoft mla newcastle university nhs oclc sakai tilburg university ukoln university of bath university of bristol university of london university of york w3c iwmw jisc information environment accessibility algorithm amazon web services api archives blog born digital cataloguing cd-rom collection development copyright data data set digital curation digital library digital preservation digitisation dissemination e-learning e-science framework further education higher education ict information architecture infrastructure intellectual property internet explorer interoperability knowledge management metadata microformats mobile national library open access open source podcast portal preservation rdf rdfa repositories research resource sharing rss search technology social software software standardisation tagging usability video videoconferencing virtual research environment web 2.0 web app web development web portal web services wiki xcri xhtml xml xslt youtube Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1318 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk RDA: A New International Standard http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/chapman <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue49/chapman#author1">Ann Chapman</a> describes work on the new cataloguing code, Resource Description and Access (RDA), based on the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR).</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/chapman" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue49 feature article ann chapman american library association british library british museum cilip ifla library of congress mpeg ukoln university of bath jisc information environment aacr2 bibliographic control bibliographic data cataloguing data dcmi dublin core dublin core metadata initiative dvd ead frbr graphics identifier isbd marc metadata mets mods multimedia onix resource description resource description and access schema search technology software standards video vra vra core xml Mon, 30 Oct 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1275 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk News and Events http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue46/newsline <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Ariadne presents a brief summary of news and events.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a name="events1"></a>Web Tools for EU Research Projects</p> <p>Tuesday 7 February 2006 - Cambridge, UK</p> <p>EU research projects share lots of information and involve joint working amongst organisations from many different countries.
