Some institutions engage in these activities in order to preserve content that might otherwise be lost, others in order to provide greater access to material that might otherwise be too obscure to be widely used such as grey literature. The open access movement has also been an important factor in this development. Digital initiatives such as pre-print, post-print, and document servers are being created to come up with new ways of publishing.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/prudlo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue43 feature article mariion prudio d-lib magazine google hewlett-packard massachusetts institute of technology oai queensland university of technology stanford university stm university of pittsburgh university of queensland university of southampton gnu accessibility apache archives bibliographic data cache copyright data data set database digital library digital repositories dspace dublin core ejournal eprints file format gif html identifier java jpg licence linux metadata mysql open access open archives initiative open source openurl operating system perl png preservation preservation metadata rdbms repositories research schema search technology software solaris tomcat url video xml Fri, 29 Apr 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1141 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Utilizing E-books to Enhance Digital Library Offerings http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue33/netlibrary <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue33/netlibrary#author1">Shirley Hyatt</a> and <a href="/issue33/netlibrary#author2">Lynn Silipigni Connaway</a>, describe the rationale and background of OCLC's acquisition of netLibrary, the information environment that is being pursued, and the resulting benefits that libraries may experience.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>On January 24, 2002, OCLC Online Computer Library Center acquired netLibrary, a major electronic books (e-books) company.

The article introduced the idea of using metadata-based methods as a means of helping to manage the process of preserving digital information objects. At the time the article was first published, the term 'metadata' was just beginning to be used by the library and information community (and others) to describe 'data about data' that could be used for resource discovery.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/metadata" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue22 regular column michael day d-lib magazine iso jisc massachusetts institute of technology monash university national library of australia national library of the netherlands oais the national archives ukoln university of bath university of cambridge university of oxford university of pittsburgh elib archives authentication cataloguing collection development copyright data data management data model digital archive digital object identifier digital preservation doi dublin core dublin core metadata initiative framework higher education hypertext identifier intellectual property interoperability metadata national library operating system pdi preservation preservation metadata provenance repositories research resource discovery schema software standardisation standards taxonomy url usability Tue, 21 Dec 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 667 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Electronic Access: Archives in the New Millennium http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/events <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue16/events#author1">Michael Day</a> reports from Kew on the Public Record Office view of the Brave New World of online archives.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Introduction">Introduction</h3> <p>A conference on <i>Electronic Access: Archives in the New Milennium</i> was held at the Public Record Office (PRO) <a href="#1">[1]</a>, Kew, on 3-4 June 1998.

Recognition of important issues related to the archival management of electronic records dates back to the early 1970s when archivists began to investigate the accessioning of what were then known as machine-readable data files.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/metadata" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue10 regular column michael day ukoln university of pittsburgh elib aggregation archives ascii data data management database digital library digital preservation dublin core hypertext identifier metadata preservation provenance research software Fri, 18 Jul 1997 23:00:00 +0000 editor 371 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Extending Metadata for Digital Preservation http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue9/metadata <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue9/metadata#author1">Michael Day</a> suggests how the concept of metadata could be extended to provide information in the specific field of digital preservation.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Metadata_for_resource_discovery_and_access">Metadata for resource discovery and access</h3> <p>When the library and information community discuss metadata, the most common analogy given is the library catalogue record.

The most well-known metadata initiative, the Dubin Core Metadata Element Set, has the specific aim of supporting resource discovery in a network environment.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue9/metadata" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue9 tooled up michael day british library d-lib magazine ncsa oclc ukoln university of bath university of cambridge university of pittsburgh elib niss sosig archives authentication bibliographic data cataloguing data digital library digital preservation dublin core ftp gopher identifier information retrieval interoperability marc metadata preservation preservation metadata provenance research resource discovery search technology software standards Sun, 18 May 1997 23:00:00 +0000 editor 324 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
