Current Style: Standard
eLucidate December 2013
In the latest issue of eLucidate, David Ball writes about the Gold Standard for Open Access.
As ever, your dogged UKeiG contributors have been keeping up with the issues that matter in the world of information. Martin White reports on initiatives at CILIP moving towards an information strategy. Joy Cadwallader unearths more fascinating oral records of major British scientists, as welll as a new World War One archive. Phil Bradley discovers rather disturbing new features of Facebook that could enable users to be tracked rather more easily than they might wish. David Ball examines why open textbooks have lagged behind other kinds of open-access books, and how this is being addressed in the USA. Dion Lindsay treks indefatigably across Europe in search of the latest thinking on intranets. Martin De Saulles identifies a clever way of keeping files in sync across multiple PCs.
Finally Margaret Katny reviews a fascinating book on changing (perhaps declining) standards of teaching and learning as online becomes more prevalent, plus a survey of books that claim to teach you how to build an online community.
