Abstract

The principal organisational issues relating to the creation, validation and maintenance of the University of Exeter's Web site are discussed from the viewpoint of the University Library. Important issues include the effective allocation of responsibility, the timely formation of working groups, and the fostering of a spirit of cooperation amongst all departments and services responsible for providing or authorising information. Given the Web's popularity amongst users and the wealth of opportunities it provides for the dissemination of information, the commitment to its development already shown by library staff must continue.

Abstract

In the search for differentiation it is not enough to attend to the selling environment, equal attention must be directed towards the customers and what they want to buy. This article, which is confined to a handful of retailers and concentrates on the non‐food side only, tries to examine how far they can determine the design of their products and what role independent designers are playing.

Abstract

Examines the relevance of the ISO 9000 standard within the health care, local government and education and training services sectors, as well as looking at the benefits of its implementation. Explains that organizations should be clear about what they expect from ISO 9000 beforehand and presents a list of dos and don′ts when implementing ISO 9000. Concludes that by concentrating on the feedback loop part of the standard and using a common sense approach to quality, most of ISO 9000 will fall into place.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to distinguish the main features of the outburst of student radicalism at Sydney University in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper traces developments in student politics at Sydney University from the 1950s onwards, in both the Australian and international context.

Findings

The rise of the New Left was a moderate process in 1967 but became more energetic in 1969. This was aligned with a similar trajectory with the marches by radical opponents of the Vietnam war. The New Left: provided challenges to the university curriculum (in Arts and Economics) and challenged middle‐class values. Many components of the New Left claimed to be Marxist, but many such components rejected the Marxist commitment to the working class and communist parties.

Research limitations/implications

The investigation is limited to Sydney University.

Originality/value

Although the endnotes list numerous references, these are largely specific. Very few general surveys of the New Left at Sydney University have been published.

Abstract

When George Davies started his Next chain of fashion shops over two years ago he may not have realised what a revolution he was putting in train. Based on the realisation that purchasing power had moved from the young to the older 25–45 woman, — “women,” he says, “who care about fashion first and price second,” the Next group by the end of this year will have 162 outlets trading including a handful in Germany. Naturally, he has not been without his imitators. Names like Now, Visuals, Look, Surprise and Principles proliferate; variety chains like BHS and Marks & Spencer have been forced to take a long hard look at their fashion ranges; even the department stores have faced up to a changing scene. In this special feature Penelope Ody makes a close examination of the effervescent fashion sector. And the future? It could be, she hazards, that the over‐50 will be the new flavour of the month.

Abstract

Spotlights the principal emphasis of this study as descriptions of the present state and indicators of change in US channel structure. Follows this by speculating briefly about future trends in this structure and its relevance for UK business. Looks ahead to future developments and makes comparisons with the UK in regard to recent developments in US distribution patterns – particularly changing power relationships between institutions. States that though only UK sources have been available for use here, the trends in the US economy should be able to be described with sufficient detail. Concludes that there are lessons for the UK market in dealing with the USA and these should be used.

Abstract

EDITORIAL Starting this edition of VINE on a personal note, I feel I ought to introduce myself as the new 0.S.T.I. Information Officer for Library Automation. I have just completed my Dip.Lib. at the College of Librarianship Wales where I took ‘computer applications in libraries’ as my special option. This course followed a degree at Cambridge, a short spell with National Data Processing Services and a period of training at Cambridge University Library. My interest in library automation stems from the days when I considered how some of the techniques employed by NDPS could be used in a library context. I hope VINE will similarly demonstrate the possibilities of an exchange of ideas between librarianship and automation.

Abstract

The University of Exeter Library, in conjunction with NatWest UK and Mondex, commenced a pilot smartcard project in October 1996. The smartcard functions as a campus card, combining many different features such as identification, student voting, building access, registration, electronic payment — and a library card. Of all these applications, the library card is compulsory. The pilot project concentrates on identification features of current smartcard technology but recent developments, especially an International standard multiple operating system (MULTOS), will increase potential applications for libraries and other agencies. Despite encountering many operational and technical obstacles, the University of Exeter project is now in its second year of operation.
