Notes: * Rob Davies, Consultant, MDR Partners, UNITED KINGDOM. Tel.: +44 (0)208 8763121, Fax: +44 (0)797 9518481, email: Professional experience: Rob joined the British Council in 1978 and between 1984-88 was Head of Stock Management Section of The British Council Libraries Department with responsibility for provision of bibliographic services and automated cataloguing to over 100 libraries worldwide. He worked overseas for the British Council in Singapore and Indonesia (1979-1982) and Egypt (1987-1989). Since 1990 he has worked as an independent project manager, consultant and researcher, gaining wide experience of the library and information policy area and of technical and service developments in support of these. In the period 1991-3, he was the specialist consultant for libraries and information on Book Sector Studies funded by the UK government Know-How Fund for East and Central Europe in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and the Slovak Republic. He has also worked on library and information project preparation in the higher education sector funded by the European Union, World Bank, Asian Development Bank and DFID in countries such as Angola, Egypt, Jordan and Lao PDR and on project implementation in the schools sector in Pakistan, Romania and Sierra Leone. In 1995 he was team leader of a European Development Fund (DG VIII) feasibility study and project preparation mission for a 10 million ECU project to upgrade 17 Historically Disadvantaged Universities and Technikons in South Africa, now implemented. Within the EU research framework he managed DECIDE - Decision Support Models and a DSS for European Academic and Public Libraries, a project under the European Commission DG XIII Telematics Applications (Libraries) Programme and a member of the management committee of the CAMILE Concerted Action on performance measurement. He has also been active in the metadata and standards area, managing projects such as EXCEL under the FP4 Telematics for Libraries programmes and <indecs> under MMRCS. Under the EU e-Content programme, he was Specialist Adviser to the PSINet Preparatory Action on Public Sector Information throughout its duration in 2001 In the United Kingdom, he has worked on high-profile implementation projects such as Seamless (the development of an integrated user interface to citizens' information), funded by the UK Library and Information Commission (LIC) and is now centrally involved in developing CASP, its intended extension to become a national service, under the NOF Digitisation programme. His work on audience research and monitoring and evaluation has been designated as an example of good practice in the area by NOF . He has conducted a number of major studies for the British Library and the Library and Information Commission in the United Kingdom, including LIC's Research mapping exercise (1998) and its study on Partnerships between libraries and communications access providers (1999) and is currently working for its cross-domain successor body, Re:source to establish preferred definitions for the sector. Public Libraries Institutional Development : Robert was instrumental in devising, managing and establishing he Public Libraries Development Programme (PLDP), a project supported by the PHARE Partnership Programme and the Open Society Regional Libraries Programme (1995-7) to develop model public library services with EU assistance in Cluj (Romania) and Pest (Hungary). PLDP established the human network in Central and Eastern Europe eventually to form part of the PubliCA network. In addition to being a member of the PubliCA management board, Robert was a major driving force behind the PubliCA C&EE extension. He was the proposal writer and now the Project Manager of PULMAN, the successor Thematic Network for public libraries, museums and archives operating in at local level, which covers 26 countries in Europe Between 1996-2000, he devised and managed ISTAR Networks a 2 million EUR project funded under the Regional Information Society Initiatives (RISI2) programme of DGV/DGXVI with partners in Germany, Greece and the United Kingdom. ISTAR piloted new public library services delivered through ICT to support regional economic priorities and is now becoming established as a sustainable service to others.
