Web Editorial: Introduction to Issue 12

Philip Hunter and Isobel Stark introduce Ariadne, in its Web Version.

It’s new faces all round, as we welcome both Philip Hunter at UKOLN and Lyndon Pugh to the Ariadne team. We hope you find us all, and more particularly the articles, to your liking.

This issue of the web version has its usual crop of features in addition to all the material that you can read in your printed copy. Charles Oppenhiem answers even more copyright queries and Lorcan Dempsey looks at the latest report on networking public libraries, while the Librarians’ Resources section takes a look at the all new NISS service.  In this section, we invited the people behind several of the major Web-based resources for librarians (and, for that matter, academics, students and researchers), to tell us about what they have built and maintained, and how it is useful for people in the academic and research communities. This issue looks as the NISS gateway.

Three interesting reports on web technologies are included, with Tracey Stanley looking at how you can increase your sites ranking in search engines, Tony Gill and Paul Miller report back on the latest Dublin Core Metadata conference and Brian Kelly looks at the use of ‘fancy’ html in the UK HE sector.
