I am interested in working with you and your students to make using search tools and the scientific literature more efficient. Contact me [firstname.lastname@example.org or 935-4819] if you would like to discuss in-class or out-of-class sessions, research guides tailored to your syllabus, or other resources. Please encourage students to contact me directly for assistance; sometimes this works best because students have such varying backgrounds in using library collections and services. Although this blog post from Inside Higher Education involves a writing course, you may find Using Library Experts Wisely inspiring.

Copyright Law and your Rights as an Author: Mark your calendars for one of the sessions with Patricia Hart from WU General Counsel's Office.
This will be an overview of legal issues with a chance to ask questions. It will be offered twice: Oct. 5th at 10 AM at the medical campus (Cori Auditorium) and Oct. 13th at 4 pm on the Danforth campus (Arc, Olin Library Level A). For more information please contact Ruth Lewis or Cathy Sarli.
These monthly lists tend to be mostly Springer ebooks although I do include other ebooks as I learn about them. I post these monthly and they are always about 1 month behind, so you can usually find newer books that I have not posted at springerlink.com/books. In addition, CRCNetBase includes many ebooks related to mathematics and statistics published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis and others. Since CRCNetBase does not have a new books feature yet, you will need to discover those yourself.
Click on the title for more info or to request. Note: "In Process" titles may still be REQUESTED so the book will be held for you when it is available. You may also be interested in browsing an alternative listings of new books, by broad call number areas.
I always welcome your requests for book and journal purchases. You may email Ruth directly or use the web forms: Recommend a book for purchase or Recommend a journal purchase or cancellation. We are in transition between two book distribution companies right now so I am a little concerned that some important books may be missed in the gap, so don't hesitate to let me know what you need. Thank you!
Wiley and Springer both brought up new web sites for their ejournal and ebooks recently.
The new Springer interface has been available as their Beta site for several months. On the new platform you will find:
Related documents for every article or eBook chapter; this is nice but only leads you to related documents within the Springer universe
PDF Preview for eBook chapters. Note: I find this especially useful in when browsing in collections we do not subscribe to because you can see several pages of each chapter online even though we do not have full access to the book. Then, if needed, you can search the catalog or Mobius to find out if we have the book available. The ebook collections which we do have, 2005+, are Biomedical & Life Sciences, Medicine, Computer Science, and Mathematics & Statistics.
Enhanced browsing features. Note: use the TOOLS menu if you would prefer to turn off Access Indicators or search-term Highlighting.
View abstracts without leaving search results
Improved search functionality - including searching by citation
Easy filters for Online First and Open Access articles
Wiley Online Library is also more than just a new "look." More info about Features and Benefits. My favorite feature so far is that it is much easier to see when access is freely available or accessible (due to WU-license).
I have noticed several links on subject pages that need repair, particularly Wiley links, but the links from the library online catalogs and EJournals Holdings list seem to be up-to-date. If you have bookmarks or RSS feeds to Wiley or Springer tables of contents alerts or new book alerts, you may need to update your links. Please let me know when you have access problems or when you note other new features. I really appreciate your reports.
The American Mathematical Society (AMS) has now established a
complete digital archive of its mathematical research journals. For us at WU, this will not change our access because we already had access to the backfiles through JSTOR. But now these journals are also available from v.1+ at the http://www.ams.org/joursearch/ site. All back issues, starting with each journal's inaugural issue through
2005, are now freely available in electronic format through the
generosity of an anonymous donor. The AMS research journals are:
Bulletin of the AMS, 1891+
Mathematics of Computation, 1960+ and its predecessor, Mathematical Tables and Other Aids to Computation, 1943-1959
Journal of the AMS, 1988+
Proceedings of the AMS, 1950+
Transactions of the AMS, 1900+
