The BIOME launch event I reported on in the last issue of Ariadne was particularly important in providing the opportunity to gain users' comments and suggestions about the Service. We are delighted that people view the service - and indeed the entire Resource Discovery Network [1] - as providing a valuable internet tool. However we are conscious that BIOME needs to develop further and we are keen to respond to the needs of our user community.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/biome" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue27 regular column paula manning university of nottingham database portal resource discovery search technology url web services z39.50 Fri, 23 Mar 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 779 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Metadata (1): Encoding OpenURLs in DC Metadata http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/metadata <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue27/metadata#author1">Andy Powell</a> and <a href="/issue27/metadata#author2">Ann Apps</a> propose a mechanism for embedding machine parsable citations into Dublin Core (DC) metadata records.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This article proposes a mechanism for embedding machine parsable citations into Dublin Core (DC) metadata records [1] based on the OpenURL [2]. It suggests providing <em>partial</em> OpenURLs using the DC Identifier, Source and Relation elements together with an associated 'OpenURL' encoding scheme. It summarises the relevance of this technique to support reference linking and considers mechanisms for providing richer bibliographic citations. A mapping between OpenURL attributes and Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES) [3] elements is provided.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/metadata" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue27 regular column andy powell ann apps cornell university d-lib magazine iso mimas niso ukoln university of bath university of manchester bibliographic data browser cookie database dcmes dcmi digital object identifier doi dublin core dublin core metadata initiative html identifier metadata namespace openurl research resource discovery schema search technology sfx software standardisation standards url vocabularies web browser xhtml Fri, 23 Mar 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 780 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Metadata (2): Towards Consensus on Educational Metadata http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/meg <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue27/meg#author1">Paul Miller</a> describes the work of the UK's new cross-sectoral Metadata for Education Group (MEG) and calls for widespread support of their first deliverable: the MEG Concord.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>As Pete Johnston illustrates elsewhere in this issue [<a href="#1">1</a>], e-Learning is big business, and likely to get bigger.

In the corporate sector, the figures are even more impressive, estimated at $1.1 Billion currently, and $11.4 Billion by 2003.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/meg" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue27 regular column paul miller ieee ims jisc ukoln university of hull dner aggregation application profile cataloguing digitisation dissemination dublin core dublin core metadata initiative e-learning framework ieee lom interoperability lom metadata portal standards url Fri, 23 Mar 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 781 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries: Lights Out and Silver Boots on http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/pub-libs <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue27/pub-libs#author1">Sarah Ormes</a> with her predictions for the future of Public Libraries and the Internet.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>After five and a half years at UKOLN I’m leaving. I’m having a small career break and will be indulging myself in some lie-ins, a bit of travel and a chance to find out just who are all those people wandering around the shops between 9 am and 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. This then is my final Ariadne column and it’s a good opportunity to review the last five years and look forward to what the next five will bring.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue27/pub-libs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue27 regular column sarah ormes amazon ukoln university of bath cataloguing database digitisation ebook infrastructure library management systems licence mobile mp3 passwords research standards url video Fri, 23 Mar 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 782 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
