The new interface was created to improve the appearance of Ariadne both on screen and when printed: the latter is particularly important now that Ariadne is published only in electronic format (since issue 19). The old 1996 design was generally very servicable from the point of view of structure and navigation, but it had a number of features which, with the benefit of twenty-twenty hindsight, introduced un-necessary complications to the editorial process: these have now been redesigned.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 editorial philip hunter british library ims jisc nhs ukoln university of bath university of oxford university of surrey eevl elib nesli sosig copyright digitisation ecms graphics higher education licence mailbase metadata operating system search technology software web services windows z39.50 Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 602 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Practical Clumping: Mick Ridley on the BOPAC System http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/bopac <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/bopac#author1">Mick Ridley</a> discusses the BOPAC system.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This article attempts to draw some practical lessons for those involved with clumps (or thinking about them) from our experiences on the BOPAC2 project <a href="#refs">[1]</a>.

Firstly we tried to look at some typical user profiles and see what their search requirements were likely to be. Then we related this to what we found when we did some actual searches. This article will provide the reader with some pointers to the relative merits or otherwise of the projects. Some similar points emerge from both stages.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/clumps-workshop" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article jane harrington juliet dye university of westminster bibliographic data cataloguing collection description copyright data database html javascript licence opac research search technology Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 604 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Tolimac: 'Smart Card People Are Happy People' http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/tolimac#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> explains a pilot electronic document delivery service at the University of Surrey Library.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p align="JUSTIFY">As networked information services continue to expand, libraries need to reinforce their key intermediary role between information providers and end users to achieve a double objective: facilitate user access to electronic services distributed through the Internet and guarantee payment to providers.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article sally rumsey university of surrey access control adobe authentication cataloguing copyright database internet explorer privacy research search technology Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 607 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Web Editor: From 'One Stop Shop' to Information Hierarchy http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/web-editor <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/web-editor#author1">Rebecca Linford</a> discusses the web editor role: from 'one stop shop' to information hierarchy.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="Information_Science_and_Web_Management">Information Science &amp; Web Management</h2> <p>When web services began in Higher Education institutions, the majority of those employed to manage them were technical people.

People creating websites, putting up content, writing emails, posting to newsgroups and interacting with each other. Since that the basis on which the whole of the Internet works, I thought it might be quite interesting to have a look at ways we have of being able to find all of these people, using a variety of different types of search engines.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 regular column phil bradley copyright data database mailbase search technology standards url Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 610 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk OMNI: Accessing the Internet http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/omni <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/omni#author1">John Kirriemuir</a> writes about an informal survey of Internet Access in the NHS.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This article describes some of the findings of an informal study of access to the Internet for information professionals working within the UK public funded health sector e.g. hospital libraries, NHS trusts, and other public funded medical libraries.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/omni" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 regular column john kirriemuir nhs university of nottingham cataloguing copyright data multimedia resource discovery search technology standards url Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 612 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk EEVL Eye on Engineering http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/eevl <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The EEVL Team explore patent information web sites, the latest EEVL news, etc.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Following the success of the subject gateways, developed as part of the eLib programme, JISC will fund a three-year programme which will expand the subject gateways model to cover all subject areas on a broadly faculty-hub basis.

The numbers of delegates seemed to be down, and there was no accompanying exhibition. The conference appeared to be refocussing on the web research community, with delegates from commercial companies more likely to be software developers than marketing types. This refocussing also seemed to be reflected in the conference papers, which, as a number of people commented, seemed to be of a higher quality this year.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/web-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 tooled up brian kelly elsevier google ibm ilrt microsoft ukoln university of arizona university of bath university of bristol university of edinburgh w3c eevl elib sosig web accessibility initiative accessibility algorithm browser cache cataloguing content negotiation cookie copyright data digital library framework graphics higher education html hypertext infrastructure interoperability java mailbase metadata mobile multimedia open data open source personalisation rdf repositories research resource discovery search technology semantic web smil software subject gateway svg url usability vector graphics visualisation web resources web standards xlink xml Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 621 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Web Watch: 404s, What's Missing? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/404 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/404#author1">Brian Kelly</a> discusses 404 'not found' messages, and why you don't always get the same one.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>What are the ten most visited pages on your website?
