Firstly we tried to look at some typical user profiles and see what their search requirements were likely to be. Then we related this to what we found when we did some actual searches.

Some similar points emerge from both stages.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/clumps-workshop" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article jane harrington juliet dye university of westminster bibliographic data cataloguing collection description copyright data database html javascript licence opac research search technology Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 604 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Tolimac: 'Smart Card People Are Happy People' http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/tolimac#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> explains a pilot electronic document delivery service at the University of Surrey Library.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p align="JUSTIFY">As networked information services continue to expand, libraries need to reinforce their key intermediary role between information providers and end users to achieve a double objective: facilitate user access to electronic services distributed through the Internet and guarantee payment to providers.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article sally rumsey university of surrey access control adobe authentication cataloguing copyright database internet explorer privacy research search technology Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 607 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Web Editor: From 'One Stop Shop' to Information Hierarchy http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/web-editor <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/web-editor#author1">Rebecca Linford</a> discusses the web editor role: from 'one stop shop' to information hierarchy.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="Information_Science_and_Web_Management">Information Science &amp; Web Management</h2> <p>When web services began in Higher Education institutions, the majority of those employed to manage them were technical people.
