The editors, both library administrators at two large universities in the US, introduce the book by asking: in view of the major changes that are taking place in academic libraries, who should we be hiring to provide services in areas of 'critical campus concern' such as undergraduate research, data curation, intellectual property management and e-science? Indeed, this question is not taken lightly, and some of the answers offered by the authors are the result of extensive, ongoing discussion and reflection on how best to build capacity in libraries to deal with emerging resources and services.</p> <p></p><p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue67/lafortune-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue67 review sylvie lafortune laurentian university university of illinois archives cataloguing curation data e-science gis instructional design intellectual property metadata preservation research visualisation Sun, 03 Jul 2011 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1634 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: E-learning and Disability in Higher Education http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/ball-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/ball-rvw#author1">Simon Ball</a> reviews a comprehensive discussion of e-learning and accessibility that gives support and guidance to effect good practice from individual to institutional level.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Jane Seale begins her book by explaining the reticence of e-learning practitioners to embrace accessibility concepts as if they were waiting 'for the magic fairy to miraculously transform all e-learning material with one wave of her magic wand'. It is probably human nature that we would mostly prefer to be handed a ready-made meal than a lesson in farming, but we all know deep down that only the latter will lead to long-term success. Seale sets about providing a very effective lesson in farming - not a finished meal.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/ball-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 review simon ball bbc jisc w3c accessibility cataloguing course design e-learning framework higher education instructional design multimedia research usability Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1319 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk GROW: Building a High-quality Civil Engineering Learning Object Repository and Portal http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/yan-han <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue49/yan-han#author1">Yan Han</a> provides a general overview of the Geotechnical, Rock and Water Digital Library (GROW), a learning object repository and peer-reviewed civil engineering Web portal.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/yan-han" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue49 feature article yan han ieee national science foundation oai university of arizona jisc information environment wikipedia accessibility archives controlled vocabularies data digital library dissemination dublin core flash instructional design interoperability learning objects metadata multimedia portal repositories research search technology standards subject heading taxonomy video vocabularies web portal web resources Mon, 30 Oct 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1272 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk News and Events http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue45/newsline <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Ariadne presents a brief summary of news and events.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a name="events0"></a>PV 2005: Ensuring long-term preservation and adding value to scientific and technical data</p> <p>Royal Society of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK<br />21-23 November 2005</p> <p>This conference is the third of a series on long-term preservation and adding value to scientific data.

Therefore, it would be expected that this book would appeal not just to information students but also to practising librarians developing resources in this area.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/parker-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 review lyn parker sconul university of sheffield e-learning framework higher education instructional design research software usability Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1075 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
