These range from collaborative activities with colleagues around the globe through to information-seeking activities in an electronic library environment. Many of the tools which enable these activities to take place are already available within the local IT infrastructure. However, in many cases, the tools are provided through discrete, bespoke interfaces with few links between them.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/stanley" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 feature article tracey stanley british library google jisc university of leeds university of york e-framework jisc information environment accessibility archives authentication blog cataloguing content management curation data data set database digital preservation dissemination framework google docs infrastructure institutional repository open source personalisation portal preservation repositories research resource discovery search technology shibboleth software standards tagging taxonomy uportal virtual research environment visualisation vle web 2.0 Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1308 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Portole Project: Supporting E-learning http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/portole <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/portole#author1">Tracey Stanley</a>, <a href="/issue38/portole#author2">Mina Sotiriou</a> and <a href="/issue38/portole#author3">Matthew Dovey</a> provide an overview of a project to produce tools to discover information resources and deploy them within a university VLE.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><!--<br /> <h3 id="Abstract">Abstract</h3> </p><p>The PORTOLE (Providing Online Resources To Online Learning Environments) Project was a JISC-funded project which sought to produce a range of tools for tutors which could be used to enable them to discover information resources and to embed these into their course modules from within a University Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE in use at the Universities of Leeds and Oxford is the Bodington system. A key deliverable of the project was to produce tools that were designed with the ease of incorporation into other VLE environments in mind.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/portole" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 feature article matthew dovey mina sotiriou tracey stanley google ims jisc microsoft university of leeds university of oxford dner jafer jisc information environment portole algorithm bibliographic data cataloguing data database digital library dublin core e-learning google search html information architecture infrastructure internet explorer java marc marc21 metadata multimedia open source openurl portal resource discovery schema scripting language search technology software sql sql server standards subject gateway vle web resources xml xml schema xslt z39.50 Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1006 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue17/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue17/search-engines#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> writes about "Ask Jeeves", a search engine which processes natural language enquiries.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Search engines are getting more sophisticated all the time.

Such tools are already starting to emerge in the search engine market in response to users' needs for more sophisticated tools to help them make sense of the growing morass of information on the Web.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue17/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue17 regular column tracey stanley university of leeds database knowledge base knowledge management natural language processing personalisation search technology Fri, 18 Sep 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 538 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines Corner http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue15/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue15/search-engines#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> reviews 'Northern Light', which offers features not available elsewhere.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue15/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue15 regular column tracey stanley university of edinburgh university of leeds copyright database search technology standards url vocabularies web resources Mon, 18 May 1998 23:00:00 +0000 editor 498 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines Corner: Meta-search Engines http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue14/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue14/search-engines#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> discusses the next level up from conventional search engines in the 'information food chain', which provide a sophisticated approach to searching across a number of databases.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue14/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue14 regular column tracey stanley oasis university of leeds university of washington browser data database flash graphics intellectual property search technology software url web browser windows Thu, 19 Mar 1998 00:00:00 +0000 editor 474 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines Corner: Moving Up the Ranks http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue12/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue12/search-engines#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> looks at how search engines rank their results.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Previous articles in this column have concentrated on how you can get the best out of search engines when trying to track down information on the web.

This approach results in the kinds of databases maintained by services such as Alta Vista and Excite - huge indexes to a vast chunk of what's currently available on the web. However, the problems which users can face when using such databases are beginning to be well documented.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue7/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue7 regular column tracey stanley jisc university of leeds browser database hypertext research search technology software web browser windows Sun, 19 Jan 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 254 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Yahoo: UK and Ireland http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/search-engines#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> takes a good look at a new version of an old index, Yahoo, which is aimed at the UK and Ireland.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The problem with some web search engines is that they try to do everything instead of concentrating on doing a few things very well. There's an obvious advantage, of course, to being able to have all your web searching needs served by one particular tool - you only have to learn to use one interface, remember one particular URL, train users to use one particular tool. But is it realistic to expect that we can use just one particular tool to find everything we need on the web? Can a web search tool really be all things to all users?</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 regular column tracey stanley oasis elib sosig wikipedia database graphics search technology standards url Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 218 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk InfoSeek Ultra: (Yet Another) Web Search Engine http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/web-searching <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue5/web-searching#author1">Tracey Stanley</a> looks at InfoSeek Ultra, a new search engine which claims to allow searching on a index of 50 million Web pages.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="InfoSeek_Ultra:_What_is_it">InfoSeek Ultra: What is it?</h3> <p><a href="http://ultra.infoseek.com/">InfoSeek Ultra</a> (<a href="http://ultra.infoseek.com" title="http://ultra.infoseek.com">http://ultra.infoseek.com</a>) is a new search engine service from the InfoSeek Corporation, a Californian company with some years experience of developing Web search engines and Internet directories.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/web-searching" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 regular column tracey stanley database html java search technology software standards url web resources Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 172 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Alta Vista Vs.
