Many users abandon old information management tools whenever new tools are easier, faster, more comprehensive, more intuitive, or simply 'cooler.' Many successful new tools adhere to a principle of simplicity - HTML made it simple for anyone to publish on the Web; XML made it simple for anyone to exchange more strictly defined data; and RSS made it simple to extract and repurpose information from any kind of published resource [<a href="#1">1</a>].</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/chudnov" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue43 feature article daniel chudnov jeremy frumkin raymond yee richard cameron ross singer d-lib magazine georgia institute of technology google ims ims global learning consortium jisc library of congress niso oai oclc oregon state university sakai university of california berkeley yale university citeulike iesr jisc information environment archives bibliographic data bison blog browser cataloguing cookie data database digital library firefox framework google scholar html identifier infrastructure interoperability javascript lucene metadata mets mods oai-pmh open archives initiative openurl personalisation repositories research rss schema search technology service registry sfx software sru srw standards technorati uddi url usability web browser web resources web services wordpress wsdl xml Fri, 29 Apr 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1136 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Trust in Global Virtual Teams http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/panteli <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue43/panteli#author1">Niki Panteli</a> identifies ways of developing trust within global virtual teams.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>During the last few years there has been an increasing acknowledgement of the importance of trust in business interactions within the management and organisational literatures [<a href="#1">1</a>][<a href="#2">2</a>].

The open access movement has also been an important factor in this development.
