Journal reorganisation complete

by Katharine Thompson

The reorganisation of all Central Library print journals is now complete. The journals collection is now in one A to Z sequence on level 4.

This area has now reopened and the daily fetching service has ceased.

The ET series collection has also moved and is now on level 4, next to the ET reports and theses.

Thank you for your patience during this summer’s stock moves.

New environmental technology e-journals available from the library – August 07

by Debbie

The library has recently subscribed to the following journal title relating to environmental technology. It is accessible via the library catalogue.

Sustainability science
Available from: Vol. 1 (1996) onwards
Access: IP controlled. Access also available via Athens
Published by: Springer

Blurb about this title:

Sustainability Science probes interactions between global, social, and human systems, the complex mechanisms that lead to degradation of these systems, and concomitant risks to human well-being. The journal provides a platform for building sustainability science as a new academic discipline which can point the way to a sustainable global society by facing challenges that existing disciplines have not addressed. These include endeavors to simultaneously understand phenomena and solve problems, uncertainty and application of the precautionary principle, the co-evolution of knowledge and recognition of problems, and trade-offs between global and local problem solving.
The journal promotes science-based predictions and impact assessments of global change, and seeks ways to ensure that these can be understood and accepted by society. Sustainability Science creates a transdisciplinary academic structure and discovery process that fuses the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
