Upgrades to Sociological Abstracts

Dear Colleague,

Earlier this year we announced that, as part of its long-standing commitment to improve quality and depth of content, the CSA Sociological Abstracts database would be enhanced with several new features during 2005. We are proud to inform you that we have delivered as promised: the following features are now available as part of a subscription to CSA Sociological Abstracts on CSA Illumina.

* The 1952-1962 CSA Sociological Abstracts backfile records, previously available only in print have been added to the database, offering subscribers electronic access to some of the early literature of sociology. Records originally printed in 1979 in Social Planning/Policy and Development Abstracts have also been digitized and added to CSA Social Services Abstracts. This combined load has added 15,946 records to CSA Sociological Abstracts and CSA Social Services Abstracts. These records have been indexed with terminology from the Thesaurus of Sociological Indexing Terms.

* Abstracts have been added to 1963-1972 records in the CSA Sociological Abstracts backfile, increasing access to this literature.

* 2,000,000 Cited References have been added to the CSA Social Science Databases. Included with Core Journal articles in CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts since 2001 and in CSA Sociological Abstracts since 2002, the feature has been extended to all journal articles included in CSA Sociological Abstracts, CSA Social Services Abstracts, and CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts as of 2004.

* Over 100,000 "Scholar Profiles" from the new Scholar Universe: Social Science service are being provided complimentary to all customers of CSA social science databases delivered through the CSA Illumina platform.

New Product Announcement-->Canadian Health and Public Policy ebrary collections

To accommodate the new public policy and health research collections we have changed the catalogue records for ebrary a bit. The new links are listed below.

Many thanks to Bib Services for all their help in setting up the links and testing the various options. marc records are on their way, so a big thanks to BibService and ITS for their work on these as well.

When setting up links in your subject pages, be cautious about just linking to the public policy or health sections, remember that a link to the entire ebrary collection will mean that users will be able to pull a much greater range of material. Do some experimenting before deciding which links to use.

1. Ebrary [new record]

This takes you to an overall link that searches across all the ebrary collections (except music scores).

2. Canadian public policy collection [new record]

This is a collection of monograph publications from Canadian public policy institutes, government agencies, advocacy groups, think-tanks, university research centres and other public interest groups. The organizations included in this collection represent the leading edge of primary research and opinion in all areas of Canadian public policy. Their publications are vital to the understanding of developing issues in every arena of Canadian public life.

3. Canadian health research collection [new record]

This is a collection of monograph publications from Canadian research institutes, government agencies and university centres working in the area of health and medical research. The organizations included in this collection are very active publishers of primary research in the field. The publications included are both general policy documents as well as those of a specialized technical nature.

Link to the blog posting in Crooked Timber.

The post links to a flickr site where folks are displaying their Firefox customizations. The basic point is that for many Firefox is replacing the desktop as the default display.....hey didn't Microsoft try to do this with Explorer?

Firefox is great because of the opportunities to create a personal environment suited to the individual's work and needs.

New Journals from BE Press

Forum for Health Economics & Policy

Forum for Health Economics & Policy showcases articles in key substantive areas that lie at the intersection of health economics and health policy. The Health Economics section emphasizes novel empirical and theoretical work on health care markets or behavior related to individual or population health. The Health Policy section highlights health-related research directed towards a sophisticated policy audience or health services researchers. Edited by Alan Garber of Stanford University, Dana Goldman of Rand, and Tomas Philipson of the University of Chicago, Forums are chosen by the Editorial Board to reflect topics where additional research is needed by economists and where the field is advancing rapidly.

International Journal of Biostatistics

International Journal of Biostatistics highlights new biostatistical models and methods, new statistical theory, as well as original applications of statistical methods, for important practical problems arising from the biological, medical, public health, and agricultural sciences. It is intended that the journal cover the entire range of Biostatistics, from theoretical advances to relevant and sensible translations of a practical problem into a statistical framework, including advances in biostatistical computing. Electronic publication also allows for data and software code to be appended, and opens the door for reproducible research allowing readers to easily replicate analyses described in a paper.

International Journal of Food Engineering

International Journal of Food Engineering is devoted to engineering disciplines related to processing foods. The areas of interest include heat, mass transfer and fluid flow in food processing; food microstructure development and characterization; application of artificial intelligence in food engineering research and in industry; food biotechnology; and mathematical modeling and software development for food processing purposes.

Journal of Complementary and Integrative Medicine

Journal of Complementary and Integrative Medicine focused on evidence concerning the efficacy and safety of complementary and alternative medical (CAM) whole systems, practices, interventions and natural health products, including herbal medicines. To facilitate information transfer to the consumer, summaries of each article will also be published in easy-to understand and colloquial language. When feasible, selected articles will be published in other languages to facilitate distribution of information to a larger international community.

Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports

Articles in the Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports (JQAS) come from a wide variety of sports and perspectives and deal with such subjects as tournament structure, frequency and occurrence of records and the optimal focus of training for decathlons. Additionally, the journal serves as an outlet for professionals in the sports world to raise issues and ask questions as they relate to quantitative sports analysis. Edited by Benjamin Alamar of the University of California San Francisco, articles may come from a diverse set of disciplines including statistics, operations research, economics, psychology, sports management and business.

Web Citation Index

A news article in World Information Review indicated that ISI is about to release a product, Web Citation Index, that will search Open Access (OA) content, such as OA journals, pre-prints, and institutional repository content. It apparently uses the same technology as Web of Science, a tool we know well at the U of C.

Web Citation Index seems to have been announced last year (I must have missed something). Here's the February 2004 press release that announces ISI's partnership with NEC Laboratories America on the product plus a March 2004 article from Information Today.

Should the new Library include a humanities lab?

We Need Humanities Labs

Short but good think piece from Inside Higher Ed. A dedicated space for grad students and faculty in the new library could be a great addition?

Share and Play Tag on the New Web Playground

Review article from PC Magazine.

"Somewhere between Web and desktop search engines lies a new breed of "community" search engines—sites where users share among themselves the bookmarks they've created and content they've encountered. Such sites can cut through the clutter that a typical Google search might return by adding the human element. After all, communities of knowledgeable, interested people can identify relevant sites with greater accuracy than a search engine. Plus, you can leverage the work already done by others and build on that base rather than repeat it."

Looks like Yahoo's product I'm off to compare it to FURL, my current fave.

New Product Announcement-->China Insight

China Insight

Includes information on Chinese publicly traded companies. Provides a wealth of hard-to-find data integrating in-depth company fundamentals, critical sector reports, daily corporate news events, annual reports, and independent ratings reports all in a single and manageable platform.

Who knew China had publicly traded companies?

New Product Announcement-->Geoscience World

GeoScience World

A big addition in that it provides electronic access to key journals in one of the University's areas of focus.

Serves as a comprehensive resource for research and communications in the geological and earth sciences. It is built on a core database aggregation of peer-reviewed journals indexed, linked, and inter-operable with GeoRef.

This means you can search GeoRef from this site as well as through our webspirs platform. However, while GSW is set up as a SFX target (you can link from other sites to articles in GSW) it does not appear to work as an SFX source (allowing linking out of GSW to other full text sites). I think this means that GeoRef through WebSpirs will still be a good option.

New Product Announcement--->SocIndex with Full Text

SocIndex with Full Text

This is a significant addition to our resources. I think it will be of use for any type of social science question, and a key tool for undergraduates. I'd encourage you to give it a whirl while on the desk and try it out with some suitable questions.

SocINDEX with Full Text, is the world's most comprehensive and highest quality sociology research database. The index features more than 1,300,000 records with subject headings from a 15,600 term sociology-specific thesaurus designed by expert lexicographers. This product also contains informative abstracts for more than 620 "core" coverage journals dating back to 1895.

In addition, this file provides data mined from more than 500 "priority" coverage journals as well as over 1,390 "selective" coverage journals. Further, extensive indexing for books, monographs, conference papers, and other sources is included. Searchable cited references are also provided.

SocINDEX with Full Text offers coverage from all subdisciplines of sociology, including abortion, anthropology, criminology, criminal justice, cultural sociology, demography, economic development, ethnic & racial studies, gender studies, marriage & family, politics, religion, rural sociology, social psychology, social structure, social work, sociological theory, sociology of education, substance abuse, urban studies, violence, welfare, and many others.

SocINDEX with Full Text contains full text for 242 "core" coverage journals dating back to 1895, and 72 "priority" coverage journals. This database also includes full text for 547 books and monographs, and full text for 6,711 conference papers.

Social Terminology Enhancement through Vernacular Engagement: Exploring Collaborative Annotation to Encourage Interaction with Museum Collections

Never heard of folksomonies, or social tagging. Read this for a quick catchup.

Then try it out with
The ESP Tool

Researchers have always used each others work as building blocks in finding information (citation tracking). Building approaches like this into databases could help give users an useful alternative to controlled subject headings and keywords.

Tufte analyses power point slide related to shuttle disaster

If you have never read anything by Tufte, this is a good introduction. Here he provides an analysis of how the presentation of information influenced assessment of the threat presented by insulation hitting the space shuttle.

Why is this important to libraries? Maybe because it helps point out that in trying to simplify information to make it accessible, we run the risk of suppressing important levels of complexity.

These have been added to our package.

Give ebrary a whirl

The good folks in ITS and BibServices have been working away on ebrary and it is pretty close to a full scale launch.

There are now 20,000 ebrary records in the test system ( when these records hit the regular catalogue we can assume they will generate a ton of questions. So I think it might be good to start preparing yourself.

Paul Pival will be providing training for library staff. But for now, try going to the test system and playing around with the ebooks.

Many searches will pull up ebrary records, for a short cut you can just type in ebrary. Gilbert assures me that most people should be able to download the ebrary reader to their desktops. Once you link to a book, if you haven't already downloaded the reader you will be prompted to do so.

Try creating a personal account, this will allow you to explore some of the more interesting tools, for example annotations and bookmarking.

Have fun! Let me know any comments.

New Product Announcement-->International Bibliography of Theatre and Dance

International Bibliography of Theatre and Dance

International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance,represents the most comprehensive multicultural and inter-disciplinary research tool available to theater students, educators and professionals.

Initiated by the American Society for Theatre Research, IBTD becomes a valuable component to EBSCO's list of subject-specific secondary databases covering the humanities.

Since 1984, the Theatre Research Data Center (TRDC) at Brooklyn College has published 14 volumes of the IBTD. These volumes comprise a fully indexed, cross-referenced and annotated databank of over 60,000 journal articles, books, book articles and dissertation abstracts on all aspects of theatre and performance in 126 countries.

As experts in the subject area, TRDC will continue indexing various titles for the database as well as coordinating international contributors.

New Product Announcement--->Library of Latin Texts

Library of Latin Texts

One irritating thing is that we need to link to the brepolis home page (because of our license), instead of directly to the Library of Latin Texts. Once you click through from the home page, the link to the LLT is at the bottom of the display, and is not immediately apparent. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean.

CCLT's intention is to work towards a complete database of Latin texts, both Christian and other. The user will find here, beyond the normal addition of patristic and medieval texts (including, it’s worth emphasizing, a number previously unedited), the invaluable inclusion (thanks to our collaboration with Fr. Roberto Busa) of the main works of Thomas Aquinas (the Summa theologiae, Summa contra Gentiles and his commentaries on the Sentences), and neo-Latin classics such as the Institutio christianae religionis of John Calvin and certain Latin works of Descartes (for which we are dependent on the collaboration with the Lessico Intellettuale Europeo in Rome, directed by our friend and colleague, Tullio Gregory).

New Product Announcement-->Patrologiae Graecae

Patrologiae Graecae

What the heck is this you may well ask?

" PG contains more than 160 volumes of Greek material (with Latin translations) relevant to the study of the history of the Christian Church from its beginnings through the Council of Florence in 1439.

J.-P. Migne, a priest from 1824-1833, moved to Paris and began the work of assembling an enormous body of early texts from 1833 till his death in 1873.

PG is a collection of the writings of the church leaders who wrote in Greek, including both the Eastern "Fathers" and those Western Christians who wrote before the Latin takeover of the West in the third century.

PG's coverage extends to 1439, the date of the Council of Florence."

Paul Pival publishes article on blogging

Blogging for the Distance Librarian
Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning
Volume: 2 Issue: 2

Based on user lookups, Merriam-Webster Online proclaimed “Blog” the word of the year for 2004.1 Distance librarianship, until mid-way through 2004, was a subject that was underrepresented in the blogosphere. The inception of a blog called The Distant Librarian: Comments on the world of Distance Librarianship is chronicled in this article, along with suggestions for how and where to get started, as well as how to incorporate blogs that support library services for distance students.

Guidelines for Producing Recorded Demonstrations

Show Me! Guidelines for Producing Recorded Demonstrations

Abstract. Although recorded demonstrations (screen capture animations with narration) have become a popular form of instruction for user interfaces, little work has been done to describe guidelines for their design. Based on our experience in several projects, we offer a starting set of guidelines for the design of recorded demonstrations. Technical guidelines encourage users to keep file sizes small, strive for universal usability, and ensure user control etc. and provide tips to achieve those goals. Content guidelines include: create short demonstrations that focus on tasks, highlight each step with auditory and visual cues, synchronize narration and animation carefully, and create demonstrations with a clear beginning, middle, and end.

Doesn't mention not eating your lunch while doing the voice overs.

Collection Development Framework for Library and Archives Canada

Collection Development Framework for Library and Archives Canada

Important reading for Canadian Libraries. Five key directions are outlined

-Creation of a single LAC collection
-Collection of digital materials
-Focus on Aboriginal materials
-Focus on multicultural materials
-Development of a coordinate national approach

While the LAC remains dedicated to the collection of Canadiana, a quick read did not show any mention of academic materials. Many involved in the Synergies project understand the threat poised by the ephemeral nature of digital publication to Canadian scholarship.

OVID HealthStar changes

(I'm not sure if we use the jumpstart syntax, but included the information just in case)

We are pleased to announce that Ovid HealthSTAR will be reloaded this week.

The reload includes journal records but no longer includes the small percentage of the database represented by non-journal records. It employs the current 2005 version of MeSH® and reflects other current MEDLINE® enhancements made by NLM®.

For example, HealthSTAR will now include the extensive and recently updated Clinical Queries feature to allow users to restrict search retrievals to clinically relevant studies. Also added are the PubMed subject limits as well as many new search fields. For additional details about new and deleted fields please see the Reload News.

As before the reloaded version is a source for citations to journal articles that are retrieved using the NLM HealthSTAR search strategy. It will support the old JumpStart syntax but coverage dates will change as shown below:

· hstr=HealthSTAR/Ovid Healthstar <1975 to May 2005> will become <1966 to June 2005>

· hstf=HealthSTAR/Ovid Healthstar <1987 to May 2005> will become <1999 to June 2005>

· hstb=HealthSTAR <1975 to 1986> will become <1966 to 1998>

Updates to Oxford Dictionary of National Biography

The second update of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography Online is now live! This update adds 140 new biographies of men and women who left a mark on some aspect of the British past between the thirteenth and twentieth centuries, along with 18 new ready reference lists and eight feature articles for ready reference.

Building and extending on the Oxford DNB's coverage of people from all walks of life, this update adds biographies of 140 people in 132 articles. The earliest new entry is soldier and writer, Sir Roger Stanegrave (fl. 1276-1336), and the latest (by death date) is politician, Inga-Stina Robson, Baroness Robson of Kiddington (1919-1999). Of the new biographies 36 are of women.


Each update spotlights distinct groups of people with a shared identity or common link. This update examines three areas (90 biographies in total), all with an introductory essay:

* European exiles and visitors to Britain -- people who came to Britain as exiles or visitors from mainland Europe, including Georgi Markov (1929-1978), the Bulgarian dissident poisoned by assassins on Waterloo Bridge, London, and gunpowder manufacturer, Francis Grueber (c.1657-1730; whose premises exploded with spectacular effect in 1703).

* Women in politics -- women active in political life from the seventeenth century onward, with notables from Jacobean courtier Mary Villiers, countess of Buckingham (c.1570-1632), to Rotha Lintorn-Orman (1895-1935), who founded the British Fascisti in 1923 intending to protect the nation from communism. This update also includes coverage of all (deceased) female British MPs

* Household names -- entrepreneurs from cocktail inventor James Pimm (1798-1866) to John Lea (1791-1874) and William Perrins (1793-1867), inventors of a savory sauce that originated with a barrel of inedible condiment they later re-opened by chance.

Our remaining biographies are of men and women who left their mark in the arts, diplomacy, the military, trade, religion, and education.


Ranging from "Rulers of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms" to "Captains of the English cricket team," the 18 new ready reference lists included in this update are sure to provide new avenues into the Dictionary.

The eight new topical essays include a look at eighteenth-century India from P.J. Marshall, an exploration of twentieth-century English music from Stephen Banfield, and an examination of medieval science from John D. North.

Corrections and amendments to articles consist of known factual errors-verified by the research staff and, where necessary, contributors or external reviewers, and the addition of new material (for example, family life dates) submitted by readers or derived from recent publications. Articles are identified in the citation at the foot of the entry, and previous versions are available for consultation on the website.
