FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR :

In this Spring issue we feature information on metadata for digitised slides, conferences attended by our staff in South Africa and Spain, introduce you to PoultryWeb and much more! We share the new features of CAB Direct which make our premier veterinary database now a joy to use.

We also welcome new staff: Barbara Kellermann who replaces Obakeng Matsomela (now working at SARS), and Stephan Haycock, our new after-hours student. Paolo Pazzi had to leave us when he started his clinic year in September.

We hope you will enjoy this issue of Infomania, keeping you up-to-date on the latest happenings in the information world
