I am not a library historian although I am interested in our professional and institutional development. I received my library education in Ireland, although I have worked for much of my career in the UK and am now in the US. I observed the developments discussed in the latter parts of this volume and have contributed to the literature about them. I have met many of the contributors and am familiar with the writings of others.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue53/maccoll-dempsey-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue53 review lorcan dempsey amazon british library british museum cilip google jisc leeds metropolitan university national library of wales oclc queens university belfast university college dublin university of london university of nottingham archives bibliographic data cataloguing copac curation data digitisation higher education identifier information society infrastructure itunes national library repositories research resource sharing search technology Tue, 30 Oct 2007 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1359 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The (Digital) Library Environment: Ten Years After http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue46/dempsey <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue46/dempsey#author1">Lorcan Dempsey</a> considers how the digital library environment has changed in the ten years since Ariadne was first published.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>We have recently come through several decennial celebrations: the W3C, the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, <em>D-Lib Magazine</em>, and now <em>Ariadne</em>. What happened clearly in the mid-nineties was the convergence of the Web with more pervasive network connectivity, and this made our sense of the network as a shared space for research and learning, work and play, a more real and apparently achievable goal.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue46/dempsey" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue46 feature article lorcan dempsey amazon bldsc british library california digital library d-lib magazine dest google harvard university iso jisc microsoft national library of australia oai oclc research information network sakai university of virginia w3c archives hub bath information and data services dner e-framework ebank uk elib irra jisc information environment worldcat aggregation api archives authentication authentication service bibliographic data blog born digital browser cache cataloguing content management copac copyright crm curation data data set database digital asset management digital curation digital identity digital library digital preservation digitisation dspace dublin core dublin core metadata initiative e-learning e-research eportfolio firefox flickr framework google scholar higher education html infrastructure instant messaging institutional repository itunes learning management system library management systems metadata national library netvibes network service oai-pmh ontologies open access open source openurl personalisation portal portfolio preservation programmable web rae repositories research resource description resource discovery resource management resource sharing rss schema search technology service registry software sru standardisation tagging taxonomy uportal url visualisation vle vocabularies web 2.0 web resources web services wiki wireless z39.50 Wed, 08 Feb 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1207 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The Distributed National Electronic Resource and the Hybrid Library http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/dner <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/dner#author1">Stephen Pinfield</a> and <a href="/issue26/dner#author2">Lorcan Dempsey</a> with an overview of the DNER.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>What is the relationship between the hybrid library and the DNER (the Distributed National Electronic Resource)? This paper discusses that question and suggests a number of ways in which DNER strategy and thinking can be informed by hybrid library developments. ‘Suggests’ is the word, since there is currently an investigation underway that is dealing with this question which is still to report.

It has the modest and partial ambition of putting some of the discussions of the time on record. It should be read as a companion piece to two other articles. The first, Law 1994, develops the historical context for the emergence of the data centres, a central component of JISC information infrastructure, and collaterally discusses the broad thrust of JISC's developing informational activity.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/subject-gateways" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 feature article derek law lorcan dempsey british library cni coalition for networked information d-lib magazine ietf jisc kings college london tasi ukoln university of bath university of bristol university of strathclyde dner eevl elib jisc information environment sosig archives bibliographic data cache cataloguing copac copyright data data set digital object identifier digitisation framework higher education identifier infrastructure interoperability portfolio research resource discovery software url Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 723 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Scientific, Industrial, and Cultural Heritage: A Shared Approach http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/dempsey <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue22/dempsey#author1">Lorcan Dempsey</a> presents a research framework for libraries, archives and museums prepared for the European Commission.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Information Society Technologies programme within the EU's Framework Programme Five supports access to, and preservation of, digital cultural content.

First, discussion is very much about what brings these organisations together, rather than about what separates them.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/dempsey" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue22 feature article lorcan dempsey jisc ukoln university of bath jisc information environment accessibility aggregation api archives authentication born digital cache cataloguing collection description copyright data database digital library digital media digital repositories digitisation document management framework identifier information society infrastructure interoperability metadata mis multimedia national library network service operating system personalisation preservation privacy provenance repositories research resource description resource discovery resource management schema search technology software standardisation subject gateway telnet url video visualisation vocabularies web development z39.50 Tue, 21 Dec 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 656 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Public Libraries: Virtual Library - False Dawn? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/public-libraries <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/public-libraries#author1">Frank Webster</a> and <a href="/issue20/public-libraries#author2">Lorcan Dempsey</a> exchange views on virtual libraries.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="Dear_Lorcan">Dear Lorcan</h3> <p>It is my view that, to appreciate what is happening in libraries today, we need to keep two contextual factors firmly in mind.
