The digital age, the information age, the electronic age – we’ve all heard these terms so many times and have sat through innumerable discussions, and seen even more documents, trying to sort out what it all means.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/digilib" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue30 feature article david pearson bnf british library harvard university jisc sconul ukoln university of cambridge university of oxford wellcome library wellcome trust dner archives bibliographic control bibliographic data born digital cataloguing copyright database digital library digital preservation digitisation framework higher education jstor marc metadata national library preservation research search technology standards url Fri, 25 Jan 2002 00:00:00 +0000 editor 841 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Reference Books on the Web http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/ref-books <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue30/ref-books#author1">Adam Hodgkin</a> explores the range of electronic reference tools.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Reference books have been ‘published’ on the web for some years. Several hundred dictionaries are freely available. Many specialist encyclopaedias and subject reference works have been converted to become experimental web services(1).This wave of reference publishing follows no concerted plan. There is no formal market for these services and perhaps there never was an expectation of profit. The early development of the web has been like this.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/ref-books" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue30 feature article adam hodgkin google microsoft university of oxford aggregation algorithm bibliographic data cataloguing copyright data database dtd framework internet explorer schema search technology software standards url web services xml Fri, 25 Jan 2002 00:00:00 +0000 editor 843 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Access to Archives: England’s Contribution to the National Archive Network http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/archives <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue30/archives#author1">Caroline Thibeaud</a> discusses the Archive 2 Archive project.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Access to Archives project is one of the most exciting initiatives in the world of archives in England.

The same can also be said of search engines, and for many people at the moment it seems to be Google. On the courses that I run I usually ask the question ‘what’s your favourite search engine?’ and the two that are most often mentioned are Google and Yahoo! I also have a little questionnaire on my site [<a href="#1">1</a>], and that’s one of the questions I ask there.
