    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.

    Aberystwyth University news

    Since I gained my degree at the College of Librarianship Wales (CLW), that institution has become the Department of Library and Information Studies and the Department of Information Studies of the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. Now, even that staid organisation has changed! As Aber News Online, says:

    Henceforth The University of Wales Aberystwyth will be known as Aberystwyth University (Prifysgol Aberystwyth in Welsh). The new name and corporate identity are formally launched today, 1st October 2007.

    The Privy Council has approved Aberystwyth University’s new charter and statutes which includes powers to award its own degrees.

    Professor Noel Lloyd, Vice Chancellor of Aberystwyth University said: “The name change signifies a hugely important milestone in the University’s distinguished history. It demonstrates our ambition and our commitment to continuing to provide a high quality experience for students and staff. This is clearly demonstrated by Aberystwyth’s position as one of the top ten UK universities in the 2007 National Student Satisfaction Survey.”
