Ariadne 63 Now Available


Ariadne Issue 63 offers a wide range of main articles, event reports and reviews covering topics as diverse as identity and access management and developments in interoperability to improve the sharing of data and how three Web 2.0 applications can work as a virtual extension for archives. In addition to the latter contribution, of interest to the cultural heritage sector may be articles on CILIP's Executive Briefings on Resource Description and Access, the approach to planning the future of the National Library of Mongolia and an assessment of a work examining library mashups and new ways to deliver library data.

Meanwhile other readers may be interested in a Usability Inspection of Digital Libraries conducted by the JISC-funded UX2.0 research project and the efforts to adapt the online Internet Detective tutorial in order to offer a user-friendly mobile site which accurately reflects user preferences for mobile content. Readers interested by previous articles on the handling of born-digital archives at the Wellcome Library may also be drawn to the exposition of its pragmatic approach to preferred file formats for long-term preservation.
