    Location: Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom

    I am the owner and managing director of Information Automation Limited (IAL), a company that specialises in research, consultancy and training for the information profession. We are particularly interested in all forms of electronic information resources (e-journals, e-books, etc) and I teach a course in electronic publishing at the Department of Information Studies in Aberystwyth. Drilling down still further(!), my interests centre on the quality and evaluation of electronic information, and in the thinking that underpins activities in library and information science.

    Local Google

    I was very impressed by the new local Google. It is one thing to look for supplies of pizzas in Plymouth (the Google example), but quite another to find information services near Aberystwyth - the one a term almost impossible to search realistically on the Web, and the other a 'remote' location! Not only was Information Automation right there, but the map pointed quite accurately to our offices. Other searches were equally successful. Next time you need a local supplier - try it!
