To avoid confusion this is the latest schedule. Before
Tuesday, Jul. 25th III will bring down the existing service and repartition the hard drive to allow us enough space to complete the upgrade on the existing server. this will be done after hours and should not affect any of the libraries.
Wednesday Aug. 9th Migration Assuming everything is functioning correctly with 2005 III will bring us down and migrate the server. This is being done with the 2005 release allowing us ample time to upgrade to 2006 when it is most appropriate for us.

Information science also includes studying the application of information in organizations, on its usage and the interaction between people, organizations and information systems. Within information science attention has been given in recent years to human computer interaction (HCI) and to the ways people generate, use and find information.
I look at this a think this is exactly what we should be doing. Are we?
This is an email I recieved from Suellen Stringer-Hye interviewing "Alexander Johannesen, a Topic Maps programmer at the National Library of Australia". He has some intresting thoughts on the diffrence between Topic Maps and XTMs.
