Robin Neidorf has since built a successful business, Electric Muse, which is dedicated to providing high standards of online learning through training and related services.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/coelho-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue49 review lina coelho british medical association blog e-learning ebook multimedia open source webinar Mon, 30 Oct 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1284 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: The Librarian's Internet Survival Guide, 2nd Edition http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue48/coelho-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Re-visiting this work in its new and second edition for Ariadne, <a href="/issue48/coelho-rvw#author1">Lina Coelho</a> finds it amply repays the effort.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>I never read a book twice, but when I was asked to review the second edition of <em>The Librarian's Internet Survival Guide</em>, I welcomed the chance, as I was reminded why I'd loved this book so much when I <a href="../../issue35/coelho-review/">first reviewed</a> it in 2003.

Starting with tentative 'Ask us a question' e-mail services, it is now available in public, academic and specialist libraries.

From the point of view of the reader I can assure you that you can get lost in its richness and spend weeks investigating the sites and resources listed in it. Many people are sceptical about Web directories because they go out of date so readily but this issue has been addressed by the author as well through the companion Web site.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue41/coelho-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue41 review lina coelho amazon british medical association smithsonian institution project gutenberg blog copyright ebook web resources Fri, 29 Oct 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1102 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Super Searchers Make It on Their Own http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/coelho-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/coelho-rvw#author1">Lina Coelho</a> looks at the work and lives of independent information professionals prepared to share their secrets for starting and running a research business.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>If you love Boolean logic, online research and would like to work from home - this book is for you.

What brings them together is the personality of the author and this comes through in a most engaging way. Her approach is individual, entertaining and fun, unlike so many how-to books on this topic. The book is American in bias but there are a range of sources and what really counts is the enthusiasm which this books encourages in the reader.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue35/coelho-review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue35 review lina coelho british medical association multimedia privacy search technology url Tue, 29 Apr 2003 23:00:00 +0000 editor 957 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Around the Table: Health and Medicine - What Can Medics Get Out of the Internet? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue7/table <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue7/table#author1">Sue Welsh</a> of the eLib OMNI project visits some of the medical sites.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The key medical sites described in this article are only the tip of the iceberg.
