This was the third annual event for institutional web managers which has been organised by UK Web Focus. The first workshop was held over 2 day (16/17 July 1997) at Kings College London. As described in the workshop report published in Ariadne <a href="#ref-01">[1]</a> the event attracted a total of 95 participants. The workshop provided a valuable opportunity for web editors to meet their peers at other institutions and compare experiences.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue21/web-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue21 tooled up brian kelly amazon ciac goldsmiths college jisc kings college london microsoft newcastle university open university rnib ukerna ukoln university of bath university of cambridge university of essex university of glasgow university of kent university of oxford university of ulster w3c web accessibility initiative accessibility apache archives authentication browser content management copyright css data database digital media e-business flash higher education html hypertext internet explorer intranet java ldap mailbase metadata mobile ms word multimedia open source opera operating system portal rdf repositories research search technology smil software solaris url video web browser web development web services windows xml xslt Wed, 22 Sep 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 645 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk WebWatch: UK University Search Engines http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue21/webwatch <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue21/webwatch#author1">Brian Kelly</a> explores the search facilities used by UK university Web sites.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>In the previous issue of Ariadne an analysis of 404 error messages provided on UK University web sites was carried out <a href="#ref-01">[1]</a>.

During the early development of the software, individual summaries (particularly of outliers in the statistical data) were often required in order to check that the software was working correctly. Initially summaries were obtained using simple Unix scripts. For example the <kbd>urlget</kbd> script displayed the HTTP headers for a resource as illustrated below:</p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue19/web-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue19 tooled up brian kelly ukoln university of bath w3c accessibility apache browser copyright css data doc html javascript metadata rdf software telnet uri url web browser web resources web services xml Fri, 19 Mar 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 597 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk WebWatch: Conclusions from the WebWatch Project http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue19/webwatch <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue19/webwatch#author1">Brian Kelly</a> sums up conclusions from the WebWatch Project.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="UKOLN-body"> <p>The WebWatch project <a href="#ref-01">[1]</a>, which was based at UKOLN, University of Bath and funded the the British Library Research and Innovation Centre (BLRIC), involved the development of robot software to analyse web resources in a variety of (mainly UK) communities.
