Ariadne Issue 64 Now Available
Issue 64 of Ariadne was published recently with articles from Dorothea Salo and Brian Westra on how library services may best adapt to the role of data steward and the uses of data services needs assessments for science research staff. There is also a trio of articles in respect of public libraries and how best they make use of blogging, the 23 Things professional self-development programme and the use of new technologies in the planned Library of Birmingham.
Meanwhile Ed Fay presents a comparison of repository software that was carried out at LSE in support of digital library infrastructure development and Caroline Williams and colleagues look back at the history and achievements of Intute, and reflect on lessons learned as the service enters its final year. The issue also offers an article on the practicalities FRBR can offer cataloguers of accessible materials with reference to the Celia Library for the Visually Impaired in Helsinki as well as a description of Trove, 'a new discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians,' a major development in the country's national digital information infrastructure.
In addition the issue offers an unusually wide range of reports on events covering conferences and workshops that have been with us for some time as well as some that have emerged more recently.
