The reasons why we prefer one site over another may not be clear to us, but the interface of many Web sites is commonly tested to make using them as easy and straightforward as possible. Making that interface between the user and the functionality of the Web site intuitive and easy to navigate will encourage users and increase traffic. In the commercial world this can lead to higher sales or greater awareness of a product.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue39/awre" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue39 feature article chris awre amazon iso jisc dner jisc information environment accessibility authentication data digital library framework further education infrastructure metadata personalisation search technology usability visualisation Thu, 29 Apr 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1026 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Towards the Digital Aquifer: Introducing the Common Information Environment http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue39/miller <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue39/miller#author1">Paul Miller</a> discusses current efforts by UK agencies to collaborate on a Common Information Environment that meets the diverse needs of current and future consumers of digital content and services.</p> </div> </div> </div> <dl> <dt><strong>aquifer</strong> <em>n</em></dt> <dd>underground bed or layer yielding ground water for wells and springs etc</dd> </dl> <p class="indent"><small><a href="http://www.nisus.com/Thesaurus/">Nisus Thesaurus</a> 1.0.1.
