My apologies to you if you are among them. However, the pace of development of the DNER over the past few months has been so great that we decided, late in the editorial process, to postpone the publication of an article on the subject until issue 24. This is also in the interests of accuracy and detail.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue23 editorial philip hunter amazon goldsmiths college jisc ukoln university of bath university of oxford dner archives bibliographic data cataloguing copyright database portal software streaming url video web services z39.50 Thu, 23 Mar 2000 00:00:00 +0000 editor 675 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk So You Want to Build a Union Catalogue? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/dovey <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue23/dovey#author1">Matthew Dovey</a> looks at various models of virtual union catalogues in addition to those adopted by the clump projects, and other models of physical catalogues.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>In the not so distant past, if a group of libraries wished to offer a single online catalogue to their collections, they had to adopt a physical union catalogue model: i.e. they would have placed their catalogue records into a single searchable database. More recently there has been much work in virtual union catalogues, whereby the user interface offers integrated access to multiple catalogues as if they were a single catalogue. Neither of these approaches is a panacea, however – both have certain pros and cons, which makes the decision of which to adopt dependent on circumstances.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/dovey" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue23 feature article matthew dovey oclc university of oxford elib aacr2 algorithm archives bath profile bibliographic data cataloguing copac data database information retrieval opac research search technology software standards url z39.50 Thu, 23 Mar 2000 00:00:00 +0000 editor 676 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The World's Greatest Dictionary' Goes Online http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/oed-online <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue23/oed-online#author1">Juliet New</a> explains the background to the electronic version of the Oxford English Dictionary, launched on the 14 March 2000.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/oed-online" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue23 feature article juliet new stanford university university of oxford accessibility data database higher education html java research search technology sgml software url Thu, 23 Mar 2000 00:00:00 +0000 editor 677 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Convergence of Electronic Entertainment and Information Systems http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue23/convergence <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue23/convergence#author1">John Kirriemuir</a> explores the technology and impact of expanding internet access.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="The_past">The past</h2> <p>Video games have been around for a lot longer than most people realise.

This year the meeting is split into two events, and the first of these was arranged to happen at Goldsmiths College at New Cross in South East London.

A correctly executed search or series of searches can yield a number of useful results. But what is the correct way to perform an online search?
