In this issue Ariadne welcomes the new Director of UKOLN, Dr Elizabeth Lyon. Previously, Liz Lyon was Head of Research &amp; Learning Support Systems in Information Services at the University of Surrey, where she was founding Director of the Centre for Learning Developments (CLD) and was also responsible for Library IT systems, audio-visual services and administration. CLD comprised four Units promoting and supporting new Learning Technologies, Skills Developments and Applied Research &amp; Development.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 editorial philip hunter amazon british library goldsmiths college jisc microsoft ukoln university of bath university of glasgow university of surrey agora dner elib accessibility copyright data database digital library framework higher education multimedia research rslp standards url Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 743 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk After eLib http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/chris <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/chris#author1">Chris Rusbridge</a>, the former Director of the UK Electronic Libraries Programme, with an assessment of its achievements and legacy.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Philip Hunter asked for an assessment of the achievements and legacy of the eLib Programme 5 years on. It is a strange experience trying to summarise a huge enterprise, covering more than 5 years involving hundreds of people, and costing in excess of £20M, in a couple of thousand words. I immediately abandoned any thought of comprehensiveness, any formalised evaluation, or even any serious attempt at history.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/chris" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 feature article chris rusbridge british library d-lib magazine edina hefce jisc jisc collections ordnance survey university of glasgow digimap dner elib heron nesli archives bath profile cataloguing copyright data data set digital library digital preservation digitisation dissemination dublin core higher education interoperability jstor licence multimedia open archives initiative preservation research resource discovery rslp software standards url z39.50 Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 744 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk AGORA: The Hybrid Library from a User's Perspective http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/case-studies <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/case-studies#author1">Bridget Robinson</a> and <a href="/issue26/case-studies#author2">David Palmer</a> look at the Agora user studies.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Agora is one of the five Hybrid Library Projects that began in January 1998, forming part of phase 3 of the elib programme investigating issues surrounding the integration of digital and traditional library resources.

There were over 150 participants, about one half from outside the UK. As a prelude to the conference proper, a one-day workshop entitled "Information Infrastructures for Digital Preservation" was held at the same venue on the 6 December.

The day began with an enthusiastic welcome to the British Library by Lynne Brindley, who spoke about whether in hindsight the British Library could have been re-designed as a building, or as a digital resource. She went on to describe the value of the physical presence of a building and its role as a showcase for the importance of libraries. The new British Library has a symbolic role, giving libraries a dominant profile.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/kate-robinson" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 event report kate robinson british library university of bath agora dner elib jisc information environment accessibility copyright data digital preservation framework identifier intellectual property managed learning environment portal preservation research url usability web resources Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 763 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
