The plan was then evaluated by both students and library staff in order to assess the usefulness of a disaster control plan in this format. It was hoped that using hypertext would create a structured, easily accessible information resource. The resulting hypertext system was called "Pilkplan". In this article, the positive aspects and problems of using HTML in this area of library management are considered as well as feedback from users.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/disaster" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue10 feature article emma blagg ieee ifla library association loughborough university university of cambridge university of oxford elib browser graphics html hypertext information retrieval intranet multimedia national library passwords preservation search technology software standardisation web browser Fri, 18 Jul 1997 23:00:00 +0000 editor 354 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Education-Line http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/education-line <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue10/education-line#author1">Sam Saunders</a> reports on a pre-print project for education professionals.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/education-line" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue10 project update sam saunders university of leeds bibliographic data browser controlled vocabularies database search technology thesaurus vocabularies web browser Fri, 18 Jul 1997 23:00:00 +0000 editor 357 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk A Digital Library Showcase and Support Service - the Berkeley Digital Library SunSITE http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/sunsite <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue10/sunsite#author1">Roy Tennant</a> describes a resource used to create digital libraries and services, and to help others do the same.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Few topics in librarianship seem as "hot" these days as digital libraries, and yet for all the heat being generated there is little light.
