FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR :
UPSpace, the Digital Research Repository of the University is a very important development for the research community. We have included a brief description of all its features in this issue and hope that you will participate in its creation!
We have all heard that Google now intends digitising the world’s books. An extract from a recent article in The Independent gives some background to this ambitious aim. Sir Arnold Theiler and the Librarian continue their Conversations with Sir Arnold. This will be No.3, showing an information world rather different from that which Sir Arnold encountered in his day.
We hope that you will enjoy this issue of Infomania and look forward to your comments and suggestions!
