Abstract:

The internet and intranet are becoming dominant factors in much of what we do with networked information sources and services proving to be an indispensable part of our every day lives. This series of lectures reviews current developments in electronic information management, exploring the difficulties in searching, finding, gathering, organising and retrieving internet and intraextra-net based information. Access to networked information sources such as the wide variety of on-line bibliographic, full-text and multimedia databases requires well-designed electronic information management systems to better manage the plethora of information available. Understanding the features and capabilities of search engines and the use of metatags to describe contents of electronic documents is of great importance as is the need for customization and personalization of electronic information services. The series examines state of the art models of electronic information provision, along with a description of some of the strategies, processes, infrastructure, information technology and access management requirements. Finally, initiatives to create a global network of archives of digital research materials and digital preservation and archiving projects are discussed.
