It has the modest and partial ambition of putting some of the discussions of the time on record. It should be read as a companion piece to two other articles. The first, Law 1994, develops the historical context for the emergence of the data centres, a central component of JISC information infrastructure, and collaterally discusses the broad thrust of JISC's developing informational activity.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/subject-gateways" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 feature article derek law lorcan dempsey british library cni coalition for networked information d-lib magazine ietf jisc kings college london tasi ukoln university of bath university of bristol university of strathclyde dner eevl elib jisc information environment sosig archives bibliographic data cache cataloguing copac copyright data data set digital object identifier digitisation framework higher education identifier infrastructure interoperability portfolio research resource discovery software url Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 723 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk Knowledge Management in the Perseus Digital Library http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/rydberg-cox <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue25/rydberg-cox#author1">Jeffrey Rydberg-Cox</a> on the Perseus Project's new knowledge management and digital delivery tools.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Digital libraries can be an extremely effective method of extending the services of a traditional library by enabling activities such as access to materials outside the physical confines of the library <a name="anch1"></a><a href="#fn1">[1]</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/rydberg-cox" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 feature article jeffrey rydberg-cox d-lib magazine imperial college london library of congress tufts university university of oxford yale university perseus adobe browser cataloguing data data visualisation database digital library digitisation document format document management dtd gis html hypertext identifier information retrieval knowledge management metadata namespace resource discovery sgml software standards stylesheet tagging tei thesaurus url visualisation vocabularies xml xml namespaces xsl Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 724 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk Electronic Homer http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/mueller <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue25/mueller#author1">Martin Mueller</a> reads Homer electronically with the TLG, Perseus, and the Chicago Homer.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Introduction_and_summary">Introduction and summary</h3> <p>In the following pages I look at reading Homer in Greek as a paradigm of "reading with a dictionary" and other forms of "look-up" reading for which a digital environment offers distinct advantages.

We use application profiles as a way of making sense of the differing relationship that implementors and namespace managers have towards metadata schema, and the different ways they use and develop schema. The idea of application profiles grew out of UKOLN's work on the DESIRE project <a href="#1">(1)</a>, and since then has proved so helpful to us in our discussions of schemas and registries that we want to throw it out for wider discussion in the run-up to the DC8 Workshop in Ottawa in October.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/app-profiles" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 feature article manjula patel rachel heery d-lib magazine ieee ukoln university of bath w3c dner application profile bath profile cataloguing collection description controlled vocabularies data data model data set database dcmes dcmi digital library dublin core dublin core metadata initiative e-learning framework identifier ieee lom infrastructure learning object metadata learning objects lom marc metadata namespace rdf rdfs research resource discovery rslp rss schema search technology software standards url vocabularies xml xml schema z39.50 Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 728 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk Managing Technostress in UK Libraries: A Realistic Guide http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/technostress <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue25/technostress#author1">Stephen Harper</a> analyses in detail a familiar disease.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Defining_Stress">Defining Stress</h3> <p>"Stress" has become the defining malaise of modernity. Until around twenty years ago, the term was used exclusively to refer to the "fight or flight" mechanism in a specific medical context. Today, however, the word has undergone radical semantic widening. Like "nerves" in the nineteenth century, "stress" is now used by individuals to explain a huge number of maladies and by journalists, advertisers and cultural pundits as a convenient hook upon which to hang any number of social ills. In short, the enemy is everywhere.</p> <p><a href="http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/technostress" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 feature article stephen harper library association university of glasgow cataloguing cd-rom copyright database html information retrieval library management systems research resource management url vocabularies Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 729 at http://live.ariadne.ac.uk ZOPE: Swiss Army Knife for the Web? http://live.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/zope <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue25/zope#author1">Paul Browning</a> looks at this multiple authoring environment.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="Motivation">Motivation</h2> <p>I would be surprised if most people don't feel a sense of achievement when they author their first Web page.
