It is part of the job of many of us - librarians or information managers - to select what our users will find useful from this mass of information. How do we decide whether or not to add details of an Internet site to our resource guide or Web page? What criteria should we use when recommending Internet resources to an individual or class? How can we judge the quality or appropriateness of a resource for a particular query or user?</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/digital" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue16 feature article judith edwards carnegie mellon university edina university college london elib bibliographic data browser cd-rom collection development copac copyright data database java licence passwords search technology software subject gateway url web browser Sat, 18 Jul 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 509 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Law Vs Jordan http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/law <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue16/law#author1">Stephen Gough</a> discusses: Who makes the best manager of a converged service?</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This was the subject of an exciting and amusing, albeit tongue-in-cheek, debate that rounded off the "50 Years of Information Developments in Higher Education" conference held in Manchester from 16 - 18 June 1998. The motion that "Librarians are Better Equipped to Run Merged Information Services" was proposed by Derek Law, Librarian at Kings College London and opposed by Andy Jordan, Director of Computer Services at Huddersfield. Robin McDonough, Director of Information Services at Manchester University, seconded the motion and Chris Hunt, Librarian at Manchester supported Andy Jordan.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/law" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue16 feature article stephen gough kings college london library of congress university of manchester university of reading higher education mac os url Sat, 18 Jul 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 510 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk What Are XLink and Xpointer? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/what-is <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue16/what-is#author1">Brian Kelly</a> explains XLink and XPointer.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="Background">Background</h2> <p>The <em>What Is ...?</em> article in the last edition of Ariadne gave an introduction to XML, the Extensible Markup Language <a href="#ref-01">[1]</a>. XML has been developed to overcome HTML's lack of extensibility - with XML you will be able to define your own element tags. We have already seen a variety of communities defining element tags for use within their community, such as MathML <a href="#ref-02">[2]</a> and MusicML <a href="#ref-03">[3]</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/what-is" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue16 tooled up brian kelly ukoln university of bath w3c browser copyright html hypertext infrastructure intellectual property mathml url xlink xml xpointer Sat, 18 Jul 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 511 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Metadata Corner http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/delos <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue16/delos#author1">Michael Day</a> reports from Tomar, Portugal, on the DELOS6 Workshop.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/delos" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue16 regular column michael day ahds d-lib magazine jisc kings college london national library of australia ukoln university of bath elib internet archive jisc information environment archives copyright data database digital archive digital library digital preservation digitisation framework higher education information retrieval metadata multimedia national library preservation preservation metadata research resource description resource discovery software url video Sat, 18 Jul 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 515 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Planet SOSIG http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue16/planet-sosig <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue16/planet-sosig#author1">Phil Cross</a> presents the first of an occasional series of articles looking at individual subsections within SOSIG.
