New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Process Studies.
From the PDC website for the journal:
“Process Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that may be defined as referring primarily, although not exclusively, to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and his intellectual associates, most notably Charles Hartshorne. With this focus, Process Studies seeks to explore process thought more broadly as it appears in related philosophies and theologies and to apply the Whiteheadian conceptuality to other fields, such as aesthetics, biology, cosmology, economics, ethics, history of religions, literary criticism, mathematics, political thought, psychology, physics, social science and sociology. The journal is published by the Center for Process Studies.”
Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1971) to present.

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : International review of environmental and resource economics.
From the Now Publishers website for the journal:
“Environmental and resource economics has become a broad topic, making connections with many other subdisciplines in economics as well as the natural and physical sciences. It has also experienced a significant growth in research such that the literature is exploding in terms of the number of topics addressed, the number of methodological approaches being applied and the sheer number of articles being written. Coupled with the high degree of specialization that characterizes modern academic research, this proliferation of topics and methodologies makes it impossible for anyone, even those who specialize in the subject, to keep up with developments in the field.
“The International Review of Environmental and Resource Economics is designed to fill this niche by publishing state-of-the-art review articles by top specialists in their fields who have made…

We would like to invite our users to tell us why they love using the library, or maybe (sad face) why they don’t. By our noticeboard you will find some pink paper, pens, and a large nicely decorated box. Simply write us a love letter, or a break up letter, telling us what you think of the library services, why you use us, and what we can improve, and drop it in the box. The survey is totally anonymous.
The results we get from this amorous survey will be used to improve the running of the library, and they will give us an idea of what we are doing right. We will publish the letters at a later date, and are hoping to carry the survey on for another couple of weeks.
From all the library staff, we wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day, and please, if you have not had the chance yet, do send us a note.
Uploaded on the SPS Library Pinterest now available a wide sample of the recently acquired E-Books for Sociology and Land Economy, as well as a non-exhaustive list of the Staff Publications of Sociology and Land Economy. Is accessing Pinterest convenient? Do you have any suggestions in this respect ? Thanks for them sent to email@example.com
This is an extremely belated account of the fantastic day I had at the Cambridge Libraries 2017 Conference, the theme of which was “Are you a Library Superhero?”. As a newcomer to the world of library work and information science, this was an excellent opportunity to learn more about a field in which I plan to forge a career in.
With all of the nervous excitement of a newbie, I met with Jenni, Victoria and David from CfAS in the crowded meeting hall (and availed myself of some of the freebies on display) before settling down for a worthy introduction to the conference and the first keynote address, presented by Dr. Jeremy Knox. This was an interesting and informative presentation into emerging digital technologies and the challenges and opportunities they might present in higher education (and the provision thereof). Concepts of “openness” and automation were explored via…
