    Name:
    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.

    Why Archives?

    Went to an interesting research seminar in the Department after my lecture today. It was given by Sarah Horton (lecturer), and dealt with why there has never really been any theoretical - or even philosophical - underpinning to the subject in the UK. Clearly, Sarah and colleagues will be publishing soon in an attempt to remedy the situation. Gwilym Huws (ex HoD) drew a parallel with librarianship 30 or so years ago.
