Researchers from a range of disciplines have also suggested that visual materials are of great value either as a core focus or to support the research process. For example, studies looking at the effect of visual materials in education have explored how both short-term and long-term memory is associated with the different hemispheres of the brain, but also which kind of information is best retained through the use of images.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue45/notay" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue45 feature article balviar notay catherine grout ahds bbc bufvc edina google jisc tasi university of durham university of east anglia wellcome trust artworld dner elib jisc information environment lifesign pixus vsm accessibility archives copyright data digital library digitisation flickr framework further education higher education podcast portal portfolio research resource discovery rss search technology software video web services wsrp Sat, 29 Oct 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1186 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The JISC 5/99 Programme: What's in a Number? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/5-99 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/5-99#author1">Rachel Bruce</a> and <a href="/issue38/5-99#author2">Balviar Notay</a> give an overview of the outputs and influences of the JISC 5/99 Learning and Teaching and Infrastructure Programme.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The 5/99 Programme, as it became known, was funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (<a href="http://www.jisc.ac.uk">JISC</a>) [<a href="#1">1</a>] in the year 2000. Quite simply the name, 5/99, refers to the number of a JISC circular letter. It was the fifth circular issued by the JISC in 1999. So the name is pretty meaningless to those outside the JISC or not involved in one of 54 projects that were funded via the circular. The majority of the projects have now completed, the programme end date was July 2003.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/5-99" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 feature article balviar notay rachel bruce british library bufvc cerlim edina jisc jisc collections mimas oai surrey institute of art & design ukoln university college london university of liverpool university of oxford university of strathclyde chcc dner eevl elib iconex iesr inspiral jafer jisc information environment jorum patois sosig subject portals project trilt xgrain zetoc accessibility archives authentication authorisation service cataloguing data data set database digital library e-learning ejournal framework further education geospatial data gis higher education infrastructure infrastructure service internet explorer interoperability java jstor learning objects licence metadata open archives initiative open source openurl portal repositories research resource discovery rslp search technology service registry sfx software standards usability video visualisation z39.50 Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1003 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
