The 'Scoping Study' as it has now become known, was funded by the Andrew W Mellon Foundation and completed its findings in July 1999. This paper briefly outlines the reasons behind the study, its methodology and how this might be applied to other institutions, the main results, and the planned next stages.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/oxford-mellon" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue22 feature article stuart lee andrew w mellon foundation jisc ukoln university of bath university of oxford archives cataloguing collection development copyright data data management digital library digitisation dissemination higher education infrastructure intellectual property metadata preservation research software url Tue, 21 Dec 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 654 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Delivering the Electronic Library: The ARIADNE Reader http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/ariadne-reader <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue22/ariadne-reader#author1">John MacColl</a> on the new ARIADNE Reader.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The ARIADNE Project was born in September 1995, and the first meeting of the participants from the two partner sites of Abertay Dundee and UKOLN took place in a restaurant after a one-day meeting at the Library Association, in the couple of hours between the Dundee editors leaving the meeting and having to leave for the overnight train from King’s Cross. In our time-limited discussion, we drafted out a shape for the print and web versions of ARIADNE, defining regular feature titles and listing ideas and contacts to be pursued.
