However, under any other circumstances it might justifiably have been considered perverse and hence I begin by drawing your attention to the article by <strong>Marieke Guy</strong>, <strong>Andy Powell</strong> and <strong>Michael Day</strong>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 editorial richard waller ahds bbc jisc oai ukoln daedalus portole accessibility archives data dspace e-learning electronic theses eprints further education interoperability metadata oai-pmh open archives initiative perl repositories resource discovery software standards url xml z39.50 Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1001 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The AHDS Is Evolving: Changes at the Arts and Humanities Data Service http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/ahds <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/ahds#author1">Alastair Dunning</a> describes the changes afoot at the AHDS and how it intends to adapt to the changes in both technology and the needs of its stakeholders.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Established in 1995, the <a href="http://ahds.ac.uk/">Arts and Humanities Data Service</a> [<a href="#1">1</a>] was created with the objective of developing an infrastructure to manage the growing number of digital resources being created within the arts and humanities.</p> <p>One medium for discussing this initial development was Ariadne, and Daniel Greenstein and Jennifer Trant's 1996 article [<a href="#2">2</a>] gave a detailed account of the aims and organisation of the AHDS.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/ahds" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 feature article alastair dunning ahds jisc kings college london surrey institute of art & design university of essex university of glasgow university of oxford university of york archives cataloguing data data set database framework ict infrastructure preservation research search technology standardisation Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1002 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 Improving the Quality of Metadata in Eprint Archives http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/guy <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue38/guy#author1">Marieke Guy</a>, <a href="/issue38/guy#author2">Andy Powell</a> and <a href="/issue38/guy#author3">Michael Day</a> address the argument that the quality of service to end-users is markedly influenced by the quality of metadata being produced and provide suggestions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Throughout the eprints community there is an increasing awareness of the need for improvement in the quality of metadata and in associated quality assurance mechanisms.
