**Issue 15 of Ariadne is now Available in both print and web versions.

Web version available at

 URL: http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue15/

**In this issue:

At the Event: John MacColl in his report on the UCISA conference (both
versions) illustrates the changing priorities in resource 
allocation during the past few years.

View from the Hill: this month featuring an interview with Anne Mumford,
head of JISC ASSIST, who sets out the organization's priorities.

Minotaur: Gordon Brewer re-examines the "convergence of services" issue. 

ROUTES: Una O'Sullivan reports on the Open University project on the
selection and exploitation of electronic resources. 

Interface: features an interview with Derek Law, Director of Information
Services and Systems at King's College London. 

The Cover Feature: Liz Lyon describes the  PATRON eLib (UK) project which
assists teaching and learning in the arts.


The Access Catalogue: Gateway to Resources: Terry Hanson describes 
the access catalogue as an aid to the integrated exploitation of all forms
of electronic information.

A National Co-ordinating Body for Digital Archiving?: David Haynes
discusses the preservation of electronic documents, and the 
policies necessary to create electronic archival
services of value.

Public Libraries Corner: Sarah Ormes reports on the American Public
Library Association conference in Kansas City, Missouri.


**This issue of Ariadne features the reappearance of "Get Tooled Up" - a
section focussing on technical matters. 

Showing the Door to Robots: Ian Peacock's article on the Robot Exclusion
Protocol explains the importance of, and how to write, the 
simple files which help prevent web robots from
trampling all over your server - provided of course that they 
have been given some elementary house training before
being let loose.  The article also features a link to a 
neat and fully operational parsing tool for exclusion files.


Brian Kelly has contributed an explanation of XML in the What Is...?
column, currently living in the same section. Brian has also 
contributed an account of the key issues which were
discussed at the WWW7 conference in Brisbane in his Web Focus Column. 

RDF, which was a major issue in Brisbane, surfaces again in Ariadne's
pages in an At the Event report by Matthew Dovey on a UKOLN hosted
half-day seminar held in Bristol (UK) on the 8th of May.


Other regular columns include:
 
Search Engines Corner: Tracy Stanley tries out the Northern Light
search engine. This service is innovative in a number of respects, and not
least because it is attempting to fund its operation through the 
supply of documents from an archive, rather than banner advertising. 

Planet SOSIG: Lesly Huxley reports on a new satellite orbiting Planet
SOSIG, which those in the UK social sciences field will find of 
particular interest.

In addition three UK eLib project reports are covered, (including project
PATRON), the return of the caption competion, etc., etc.  


**Those wishing to contribute to Ariadne should note that Isobel Stark has
left Ariadne and has taken up a position as a subject librarian 
in the Library of the University of Bath. All mail
and contributions for Ariadne should be sent to:
