Building upon the work of many gopher servers, the WWW has quickly become the popular medium for provision of information on the networks. The development of intra-nets within businesses is a testament to the accessibility of the WWW model. However, the proliferation of Internet resources, from topical sites to electronic journals, has posed a significant challenge to the information profession.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/subject-tree" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue5 project update ian tilsed library of congress university of exeter university of york niss accessibility copyright gopher html hypertext research software tagging url Wed, 18 Sep 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 144 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk UKERNA: Training the Networkers http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue5/ukerna <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue5/ukerna#author1">John MacCulloch</a> and <a href="/issue5/ukerna#author2">Jane Batchelor</a>, from UKERNA, detail their training course, designed for those installing, running, supporting, or managing a JANET connection.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Computer networking forms the basis for a whole raft of new information technologies; electronic mail, world wide web, networked data services, electronic mailing list services, electronic journals, on-demand publishing, and electronic document delivery to name but a few.
