The authors collected here come from a range of backgrounds and organisations across the public and private sectors, but predominantly (like the two editors) from what I would call the information management consultancy industry.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/paschoud-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 review john paschoud jisc london school of economics elib jisc information environment archives framework information architecture interoperability metadata open source software xml Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1072 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Managing Your Internet & Intranet Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/hook-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/hook-rvw#author1">David Hook</a> sees this edition as a useful overview but finds unfortunate omissions as well as beneficial inclusions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Building and maintaining Web sites and intranets are no longer simple, unimportant tasks that can be relegated to an IT department. The 2nd edition of Peter Griffiths' <em>Managing Your Internet &amp; Intranet Services</em> not only recognizes this, but argues that perhaps it is LIS professionals who are best suited for managing Web sites and intranets.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/hook-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 review david hook blog content management copyright document management information architecture intranet research software usability web development Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1073 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Staying Legal http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/hannabuss-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/hannabuss-rvw#author1">Stuart Hannabuss</a> examines an interesting collection of essays and, with reservations, likes the second edition a lot more.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Like climbing Everest, information law is now a highly competitive field. The first edition of this work, edited by Chris Armstrong alone, appeared from Facet in 1999. It reflected the preoccupations of the mid-1990s, captured changing law like Internet regulation and database rights, and showed a growing understanding of information liability and the need properly to interpret contracts.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/hannabuss-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 review stuart hannabuss robert gordon university copyright data database ecms foi foia intellectual property Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1074 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Developing Web-based Instruction http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/parker-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/parker-rvw#author1">Lyn Parker</a> finds this compilation a useful overview of the issues involved in developing e-learning and a valuable addition to the literature.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Developing Web-based instruction or online information tutorials is a key interest within Higher Education libraries at present as librarians struggle to cope with increasing student numbers, evolving technology, and higher expectations of students that their materials will be delivered electronically. 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 Book Review: Net Effects http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/young-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/young-rvw#author1">Grant Young</a> reviews a compilation of articles showcasing librarians' efforts to wrest control of new technologies and reassert some traditional values.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Marylaine Block will be well-known to many readers of <em>Ariadne</em> - perhaps chiefly for her 'Neat New Stuff' and <em>ExLibris</em> bulletins. As its name suggests, 'Neat New Stuff' is a weekly compilation of noteworthy sites Block has discovered in her Web crawling. Her other weekly online publication,<em> ExLibris</em>, is an 'e-zine' containing interesting and provocative articles, reviews and tidbits of information from Block and others.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/young-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 review grant young university of bristol accessibility archives blog cataloguing jstor open source preservation repositories research rss search technology Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1076 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
