The CURL database has been in existence since 1987, permitting record exchange between member libraries and providing a reference service to library staff, and it has long been felt that the database would be of value to the wider academic community. COPAC is the product of a JISC funded project to make the CURL database accessible to the research community as a whole.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/copac" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 feature article shirley cousins british library jisc university of cambridge university of edinburgh university of glasgow university of leeds university of manchester university of oxford elib algorithm bibliographic data browser cataloguing copac data database marc opac passwords research search technology software tagging telnet z39.50 Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 271 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk INFOMINE http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/infomine <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue8/infomine#author1">Steve Mitchell</a> describes INFOMINE, an impressive attempt to build a Web-based virtual library for the academic community.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/infomine" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 feature article steve mitchell library of congress stanford university university of california, santa barbara a2z jisc information environment cataloguing collection development database dublin core ftp gopher html hypertext lcsh marc research search technology subject heading Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 273 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk A Glimpse at EEVLs' Evaluation http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/eevl-evaluation <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A Glimpse at EEVLs' Evaluation: <a href="/issue8/eevl-evaluation#author1">Malcolm Moffat</a>, Database Officer for the Edinburgh Engineering Virtual Library (EEVL) project, describes some findings from an initial evaluative study.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/eevl-evaluation" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 project update malcolm moffat eevl elib archives bibliographic data database research search technology software Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 274 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk RUDI: Resource for Urban Design Information Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/rudi <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue8/rudi#author1">Alan Reeve</a> maps out a new site in urban design.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/rudi" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 project update alan reeve british library de montfort university jisc oxford brookes university university of hertfordshire university of oxford copyright dissemination metadata research search technology Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 277 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk WoPEc: Electronic Working Papers in Economics Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/wopec <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue8/wopec#author1">Thomas Krichel</a> describes WoPEc, a working papers project.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/wopec" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 project update thomas krichel university of surrey elib archives bibliographic data database free software ftp metadata research search technology software Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 278 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Resource Discovery Project http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/resource-discovery <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As <a href="/issue8/resource-discovery#author1">Renato Iannella</a> shows, the Resource Discovery project at the DSTC in Australia is investigating issues to do with information discovery and access across large heterogeneous networks.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Resource_Discovery_at_DSTC">Resource Discovery at DSTC</h3> <p>The Resource Discovery Project is one of the major research units of the <a href="http://www.dstc.edu.au">Distributed Systems Technology Centre</a> (DSTC).
