Abstract

The exponential growth of the World Wide Web in terms of sites and of users has created an environment in which the basic mechanisms of how information should be best represented and transmitted to end‐users must be re‐examined.

Abstract

The requirements for transmission methods are accuracy, speed, ease of use, ability to switch requests, ability to respond to requests, and cost. Postal services are still most commonly used. Telephone and Telex are faster, but can be expensive. New alternatives include automatic document request services, direct requesting by computer, automated request switching systems, and telefacsimile. These new methods will become more popular as costs of equipment decrease.

Abstract

A brief introduction is given to the ADONIS system. An account is given of the way in which British Library Document Supply Centre (BLDSC) has utilised CD‐ROM jukebox technology to optimise its use of the ADONIS system. A brief description of BLDSC's future plans for using jukebox technology is given.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to investigate Bentley Motors Ltd winner of the Manufacturing Institute's 2007 Product Innovation Award for its composite technology and examine the need for UK manufacturing to become far more innovative.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper looks at Bentley Motors Ltd's manufacturing innovation and introduces some of the ideas presented at the UK/US Manufacturing Summit.

Findings

The paper finds that the UK/US Manufacturing Summit delegates were given some sobering realities about the need for UK manufacturing to become far more innovative, in all aspects, if they are too survive. In particular they were reminded of need to remember the basics of innovation – rather than looking for a silver bullet – and the importance of developing twenty‐first century managers.

Originality/value

This paper highlights the need to remember the basics of innovation and the importance of developing twenty‐first century managers.

Abstract

Examines the competencies which will be required by the information worker of the twenty‐first century. Emphasis is placed on those new technology skills which are constitutive of the information industries of the future. The paper challenges the assumption that there will always be a role for the information professional. It is argued that unless the profession proactively pursues added‐value activities based on new technologies it will become superfluous.

Abstract

The influence of traditional individually oriented Organization Development (OD), with its focus on psychological dispositions, on self-development and growth, is currently waning. I argue here that individually oriented OD would be well served by a new focus on habitus and social position that expand our understanding of human behavior. Using Bourdieu's concept of social position in the form of “habitus-oriented approach,” as I do here using my consulting experience, allows individually oriented OD to become a scholarly and professional site that understands human behavior in terms of both the social and the personal.

Abstract

Today an estimated 500,000 personal computers have been purchased by Americans who use them at home and in a variety of small business applications. (Note: We define a personal computer as a small, relatively inexpensive, microprocessor‐based device which can be taken out of its box, plugged in and begin working immediately, as opposed to large computers which must be permanently installed, and/or require professional programming. We exclude microprocessor‐based devices whose only function is limited to the playback of packaged games.) Many market research services believe that personal computer sales will continue to grow rapidly, perhaps as fast as a 50 percent annual growth rate for the next several years. The impact of this new interactive information technology coming into the possession of perhaps millions of people can only be guessed at at this early juncture. To us, as librarians, one of the more perceivable results of the growing wave of interest in personal computers has been the proliferation of literature addressed to the personal computer user.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to review, critique and develop a research agenda for the Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM). The model was introduced by Petty and Cacioppo over three decades ago and has been modified, revised and extended. Given modern communication contexts, it is appropriate to question the model’s validity and relevance.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors develop a conceptual approach, based on a fully comprehensive and extensive review and critique of ELM and its development since its inception.

Findings

This paper focuses on major issues concerning the ELM. These include model assumptions and its descriptive nature; continuum questions, multi-channel processing and mediating variables before turning to the need to replicate the ELM and to offer recommendations for its future development.

Research limitations/implications

This paper offers a series of questions in terms of research implications. These include whether ELM could or should be replicated, its extension, a greater conceptualization of argument quality, an explanation of movement along the continuum and between central and peripheral routes to persuasion, or to use new methodologies and technologies to help better understanding consume thinking and behaviour? All these relate to the current need to explore the relevance of ELM in a more modern context.

Practical implications

It is time to question the validity and relevance of the ELM. The diversity of on- and off-line media options and the variants of consumer choice raise significant issues.

Originality/value

While the ELM model continues to be widely cited and taught as one of the major cornerstones of persuasion, questions are raised concerning its relevance and validity in 21st century communication contexts.

Abstract

MEW requirements for transporting heavy loads in power plant construction, transferring ship cargoes to the shore and providing economic, quiet and energy conservative inter‐city transportation are reviving interest in lighter‐than‐air vehicles throughout the world. Military planners, too, are taking another look at the use of airships for some military missions for which they seem to be particularly well‐adapted.
