We forget, of course, that loss was always the norm. The wonderful documents in papyrus, parchment and paper that we so admire and wonder at, are the few lucky survivors of their times. Sometimes they have been carefully nurtured, sometimes they have been accidentally preserved. But almost all were lost!</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue69/rusbridge-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue69 review chris rusbridge british library dcc jisc national library of australia university of glasgow university of oxford university of virginia elib wikipedia archives bibliographic data curation data digital library digital preservation digital repositories ebook facebook internet explorer mis preservation privacy repositories research social web twitter web services wordpress youtube Sun, 29 Jul 2012 18:17:27 +0000 lisrw 2365 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Excuse Me...

The original suggestion was for a follow-up "even more after eLib"; however, I now work for JISC, and that probably makes it hard to be objective!</p> <p>In "After eLib", I wrote this paragraph about digital preservation:</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue46/rusbridge" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue46 feature article chris rusbridge andrew w mellon foundation british library california digital library d-lib magazine dcc harvard university jisc microsoft national library of the netherlands oais the national archives university of edinburgh elib internet archive archives browser curation data digital curation digital library digital preservation digital repositories file format gopher graphics infrastructure interoperability metadata microsoft office national library open source preservation preservation metadata provenance repositories research software wayback machine web browser Wed, 08 Feb 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1211 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk After eLib http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/chris <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/chris#author1">Chris Rusbridge</a>, the former Director of the UK Electronic Libraries Programme, with an assessment of its achievements and legacy.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Philip Hunter asked for an assessment of the achievements and legacy of the eLib Programme 5 years on. It is a strange experience trying to summarise a huge enterprise, covering more than 5 years involving hundreds of people, and costing in excess of £20M, in a couple of thousand words. I immediately abandoned any thought of comprehensiveness, any formalised evaluation, or even any serious attempt at history.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/chris" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 feature article chris rusbridge british library d-lib magazine edina hefce jisc jisc collections ordnance survey university of glasgow digimap dner elib heron nesli archives bath profile cataloguing copyright data data set digital library digital preservation digitisation dissemination dublin core higher education interoperability jstor licence multimedia open archives initiative preservation research resource discovery rslp software standards url z39.50 Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 744 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Horse That Isn't There: 1997 US Digital Libraries Initiative Meeting http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue10/dli <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue10/dli#author1">Chris Rusbridge</a> reports from the June 1997 US Digital Libraries initiative (DLi) meeting in Pittsburgh.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>"ASQ-not!" seemed to be a catch phrase at the US Digital Libraries initiative (DLi) meeting in Pittsburgh in July.
