In a possibly noticeable change of direction, the Web version of Ariadne (WVA for short) will have a significantly heavier bias towards making its target audience aware of relevant and useful services and resources.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 editorial john kirriemuir british library d-lib magazine jisc ukerna ukoln elib browser copyright data dublin core metadata provenance research search technology web browser Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 137 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Editorial Introduction to Issue 4: Changes to Ariadne and How to Read the Web Version http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue4/editor.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The editor explains changes in Ariadne format.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Caching:_A_criminal_offence_not_to">Caching: A criminal offence not to?</h3> <p>How many others are dreading the next massive intake/return of Internet curious student in the autumn, and the subsequent effects on networking speed?</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue4/editor.html" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue4 editorial john kirriemuir jisc elib niss cache data digital library dublin core e-learning metadata preservation research search technology Thu, 18 Jul 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 101 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Best eLib Project Web Pages http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue4/best_elib <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>In the spring, we held a competition for those eLib projects that had, to date, produced and mounted their own set of Web pages.
