Bentham also promoted the idea of political economy as the greatest good for the greatest number. Drawing on his terminology as the basis for this article, I therefore propose the new term 'infopolecon' to describe the political economy of information.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/lindsay" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 feature article john lindsay british library edina jisc kingston university microsoft ncsa sconul ucisa ukerna acorn elib niss browser cataloguing cd-rom copyright data data set database digital library digitisation higher education html infrastructure licence multimedia passwords rae research search technology standardisation url z39.50 Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 192 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Lessons Learned from Developing and Delivering the BORGES Information Filtering Tool http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/borges <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/borges#author1">Alan Smeaton</a> discusses the development and implementation of BORGES, an information filtering service for WWW pages and USENET news.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Although it may appear that it is only recently that we have discovered a need for automatic information filtering, the practice of automatically filtering a flow of information has been in use for over 30 years. The emphasis in systems since the earliest days has been on the speed of the filtering operation, ensuring that it is performed as quickly as possible. Because of the volume of information now being generated and the requirement to have this filtered, issues of quality or the relevance of information filtered for a user, are now becoming increasingly important.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/borges" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 project update alan smeaton d-lib magazine dublin city university cache copyright data database html information retrieval java lexical database passwords research search technology standardisation tagging url vocabularies wordnet Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 202 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk ILRT: The Institute for Learning and Research Technology http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/ilrt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/ilrt#author1">Gillian Austen</a>, External Relations Manager at the recently founded Institute for Learning and Research Technology at the University of Bristol, gives an overview of its structure and objectives.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Institute for Learning and Research Technology (ILRT) at the University of Bristol is host to more than seventeen funded projects at the forefront of learning and research technology, including four eLib projects ranging across the subject divide, from medicine to business to social science and beyond into generic issues.

A wide range of issues were discussed, probably too many for one day and certainty too many to be covered in this article. One of the main outcomes of the day was the identification of major issues, of interest to many projects, which warrant further discussion. It was an informal day allowing for a lot of attendee input and interaction.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/technical-day" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 event report clare mcclean microsoft verisign w3c digimap elib adobe apache authentication content negotiation cookie copyright data database document format dublin core html identifier internet explorer interoperability java mac os mailbase metadata mobile passwords perl sgml software standards video web browser Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 210 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Intranets http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/intranets <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/intranets#author1">Jon Knight</a> investigates what is meant by the current buzzword intranet and looks at how it may be applied in a library environment.

The term intranet seems to have sprung up as if by magic in the last year or so and now many products are "intranet ready" or "intranet enabled".

The tools discussed in this article and those that were used in experiments are all public domain or shareware packages. This demonstrates that the power and flexibilty of SGML can be utilised by the Internet community at little or no cost. The motivation for this work stems from the lack of standardisation on display techniques for SGML presentation.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/sgml" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 tooled up david houghton de montfort university elsevier iso ncsa university of leeds ascii authentication bibliographic data browser copyright data database dtd ftp gif html hypertext internet explorer jpeg latex perl programming language search technology sgml software standardisation standards url web browser Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 213 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries Corner: Treasure Island on the Web http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/public-libraries <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/public-libraries#author1">Sarah Ormes</a> looks at children's libraries and literacy, and describes the Treasure Island Web pages, a resource that shows how the potential of the Web can be used to make classic texts more accessible to a younger audience.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Web pages described in this article can be found at:<br /><a href="http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/treasure/">http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/treasure/</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/public-libraries" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 regular column sarah ormes ukoln copyright graphics html hypertext perl software video Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 216 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
