Ariadne Issue 56 Now Available
The Summer Issue of Ariadne Web Magazine, Issue 56, is now available with a wide variety of main articles, event reports and reviews. We have received a well-argued and detailed contribution reflecting on the implications of Web 2.0 for education and which offers two new schemas for thinking about harnessing the potential of the new technologies. There are also articles to help professionals consider not only the merits and pitfalls of remote working but also how to cope with the excess of information reaching them every single day.
The issue also features two technical contributions on the competing options in persistent identifiers and how journal back files were successfully integrated into Loughborough University Library's existing system. In looking at the networked library service layer, a further article identifies criteria for determining which data in various library systems could be more beneficially shared and managed at a network level. This issue’s column on search engines concentrates on some of the latest developments from Google, with praise and criticism alike. There is also a contribution giving a personal reflection on the JISC Information Environment and its conceptual model. As promised, the Version Identification Framework Project completes its trio of articles on aspects of versioning with a look at best practice in versioning within a repository.
