Event Title

IATUL Web

Description

In early 1995 the IATUL BOARD authorized the production of the IATUL News as a World Wide Web product. This is published in parallel with the paper version and an ASCII code version which is mailed to IATUL members with e-mail addresses. The WWW version of the IATUL News can, of course, be distributed much more quickly than the paper version. The work on the WWW IATUL News led to the development of a WWW-based IATULWEB, which sets out the Aims of the Organization, the IATUL Statutes, categories of Membership and how to join, as well as listing the Officers, Regional Groups, and links to other organizations with which IATUL has contacts. At the 1995 December Board Meeting, it was suggested that a list of hyperlinks to the Member Libraries should be included. We hope that this will make contact between the IATUL Members easier. It is notoriously difficult to keep mailing lists up-to-date people simply forget to pass on information about changes of address or membership - so this should improve access. Another planned development is to provide information about some of the projects that IATUL Members are involved with. We can now use colour-scanning facilities to reproduce photographs and pictures. This was first used in the article on the new library building at Cranfield University in England as well as photos from the 1995 IATUL Conference at the University of Twente. We would really welcome comments and suggestions for improvement.
