What effect is Google having on the information-seeking strategies of students, researchers and teachers? Where do libraries fit within the information continuum? And ultimately, what services should they look to provide for their users?</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue53/manuel-oppenheim" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue53 feature article charles oppenheim sue manuel alt cetis d-lib magazine dcc google ieee jisc loughborough university massachusetts institute of technology oreilly university of cambridge archives hub jisc information environment midess open library access control aggregation algorithm archives bibliographic data blog born digital cataloguing copyright data database digital curation digital library digital preservation digital repositories dissemination e-learning google search higher education identifier ieee lom information architecture information retrieval learning object metadata learning objects librarything lom metadata multimedia open access preservation provenance repositories research resource discovery search technology social software standards tagging usability web services web standards Tue, 30 Oct 2007 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1352 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Creative Commons Licences in Higher and Further Education: Do We Care? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/korn-oppenheim <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue49/korn-oppenheim#author1">Naomi Korn</a> and <a href="/issue49/korn-oppenheim#author2">Charles Oppenheim</a> discuss the history and merits of using Creative Commons licences while questioning whether these licences are indeed a panacea.</p> </div> </div> </div> <!-- version 3 of the text, occasioned by major error in bullet point 2 at end 2006-10-30-08-13 REW--><!-- version 3 of the text, occasioned by major error in bullet point 2 at end 2006-10-30-08-13 REW--><p><a href="http://creativecommons.org/">Creative Commons</a> [<a href="#1">1</a>] is helping to instigate cultural change: it is empowering rights holders with the knowledge and tools to decide under what terms they wish third parties to use their creations, whilst permitting users easy and user-friendly means to use content lawfully without the necessity of requesting permission.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/korn-oppenheim" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue49 feature article charles oppenheim naomi korn hefce jisc loughborough university microsoft open university jorum wikipedia archives copyright creative commons database e-learning framework further education intellectual property licence microsoft office open access open source research search technology standards youtube Mon, 30 Oct 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1268 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: The History and Heritage of Scientific and Technological Information Systems http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue46/oppenheim-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue46/oppenheim-rvw#author1">Charles Oppenheim</a> takes a look at this series of personal and researched historical analyses of the history of computerised information retrieval systems, and finds it makes fascinating reading if you are interested in such things.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This 420-page paperback includes the papers of a 2002 conference on the history of information retrieval systems.
