The answer is, in one word, "awareness" (Ariadne does reside in the <a href="http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/elib/lists/ta.html">Training and Awareness</a> section of the eLib programme). In a possibly noticeable change of direction, the Web version of Ariadne (WVA for short) will have a significantly heavier bias towards making its target audience aware of relevant and useful services and resources.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 editorial john kirriemuir british library d-lib magazine jisc ukerna ukoln elib browser copyright data dublin core metadata provenance research search technology web browser Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 137 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Croatian Libraries: The War Is Behind Us, What Brings the Future? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/croatia <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Croatian Libraries: "The war is behind us, what brings the future?": <a href="/issue5/croatia#author1">Jadranka Stojanovski</a>, the head of the Rudjer Boskovic Institute Library, describes the post-war progress made in implementing IT and networks in Croatian Libraries.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>I am going to speak about Croatia and the new information technologies implemented in the Croatian libraries.

On the one hand, the current instantiation of the Internet and the World Wide Web interfaces will one day become obsolete -- perhaps sooner than we think. On the other hand, some configuration of networked digital information technologies is here to stay. Moreover, many of the tools and behaviors that arise to tap the web's potential will migrate as the underlying technologies evolve. Thus, the Internet is far more than a set of data transfer protocols operating over a series of leased lines, packet switches, and servers.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/digital-researchers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 feature article amy friedlander d-lib magazine library of congress university of essex jisc information environment perseus archives ascii copyright data data set database digital library gis information retrieval interoperability jstor knowledge base multimedia research search technology sgml standards thesaurus video visualisation vocabularies Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 140 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Putting the UK on the Map http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/wolverhampton <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue5/wolverhampton#author1">Peter Burden</a> of the University of Wolverhampton's School of Computing and Information Technology describes the history behind his clickable maps of the UK, an essential and well established (though unfunded) resource for quickly locating academic and research Web sites.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Many of you are probably familiar with the WWW active maps of UK academic resources operated by the University of Wolverhampton's School of Computing and Information Technology.
