Although apathy was the order of the day and few seats actually changed hands, important changes have been made that are worth mentioning here in<i> Ariadne</i>. In a Cabinet reshuffle the government has replaced the previous Culture secretary, Chris Smith, with Tessa Jowell, formerly a minister of state in the Department for Education and Employment. Working alongside her in the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) will be Tessa Blackstone, also a previous minister in the DFEE.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue28/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue28 editorial marieke guy british library d-lib magazine jisc oai oxford brookes university queens university belfast ukoln university of oxford agora dner elib inspiral sosig accessibility collection description database digital library dublin core e-learning graphics metadata personalisation preservation raster graphics research resource discovery rslp software svg url vector graphics web development xml Thu, 21 Jun 2001 23:00:00 +0000 editor 790 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Personalization of Web Services: Opportunities and Challenges http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue28/personalization <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue28/personalization#author1">Monica Bonett</a> gives an overview of personalization on the World Wide Web and discusses ideas for development within resource discovery systems.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>World Wide Web services operate in a cut-throat environment where even satisfied customers and growth do not guarantee continued existence. As users become ever more proficient in their use of the web and are exposed to a wider range of experiences, they may well become more demanding, and their definition of what constitutes good service may be refined.
