Ariadne will however continue as a web magazine. The print edition has finished in some style, with a publication twice the size of all earlier copies. Attendees at the eLib "Information Ecologies" conference in York earlier this month already know this, since we arranged for advance copies to be available for that event. The Web version is correspondingly large, as might be expected, though it doesn't quite rival the scale of the web version of issue 5.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue18/editorials" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue18 editorial bernadette daly philip hunter liverpool john moores university school of oriental and african studies ukoln university of bath elib sosig cataloguing database digital archive digital preservation html information society knowledge management metadata preservation research search technology sgml software standards uri xml Sat, 19 Dec 1998 00:00:00 +0000 editor 547 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk Print Editorial: Introduction to Issue 18 http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue18/editorials/print.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue18/editorials/print.html#author1">Lyndon Pugh</a> presents the editorial from issue 18 of Ariadne's print version.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>At the end of three years of regular appearances of Ariadne, we publish our final issue.
