Changes to the Library website’s menus

A new menu called Find Information has been added to the Library’s left-hand navigation, grouping together services by type of information: books, electronic resources, journals and the Europe campus’ reference collection.

Links to the Catalogue and most-used services that appeared in the previous menu are still readily available in the right-hand side Quick Links menu.

This part of the menu has been modified:

Google Book Search: a disaster for scholars?

Geoffrey Nunberg, a linguist, and adjunct full professor at the School of Information at the University of California at Berkeley lists numerous mistakes found in the indexing (or metadata) of Google Book Search in this Chronicle of Higher Education article. The author points out some odd finds:

Stephen King’s Christine written in 1899
An edition of Moby Dick is labeled in the Computers category etc..

For illustrations and screenshot of the mistakes cited you can also take a look at this presentation.

Welcome to INSEAD class of July 2010!

Are you in the job search mode yet?
Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out (3 day loans) our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your CaseCase in PointCrack the Case. See the full list here.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch before the language placement test?
Check out our language books, here is a selected list . For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalog and type  (for instance) “japanese language” to retrieve relevant grammar and foreign language textbooks!

What about textbooks?
Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”! No need to carry these heavy items around everyday.

What do you mean “Google does not have everything”!?
At least not yet! If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, attend one of the training sessions offered by the Library, no need to register!

How do I contact you?
The Doriot Library is opened 24/7 and staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 7:30pm, you can also contact a person or a department by phone or email from the staff directory page.
