This study of community mental health teams (CMHTs) in Knowsley aimed to provide information about changes to the service user group and the nature of work undertaken in the teams following the implementation of the national service framework for mental health. Clear changes in the balance of work undertaken were identified, reflecting successful implementation of the new policies and appropriate selection of cases. Issues raised by such developments are summarised in view of their relevance to other localities.

The purpose of this paper is to propose that, within the practice of motion branding, transforming type has been largely neglected by existing theorists and its importance to wider marketing trends overlooked. It will be observed that previous texts on transitional letterforms have tended to focus on changes in global arrangement and in doing so have neglected to recognise the significance of changes that occur at a local level, within individual letterforms.
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, with examples including idents and bumpers from Channel 4, Sky, FOX, Five and MTV. New methods of understanding these artefacts will be introduced, with emphasis on how they affect the relationship between broadcaster’s identities and the medium of television. Modes of definition and understanding that have previously been applied to holographic poetry will be applied to the field of on-screen artefacts.
The paper will discuss how branding has adapted to incorporate the features of the medium of television, and propose new methods of classification for the associated processes of metamorphosis, construction, parallax and revelation.
Motion branding, in the form of television idents, is frequently described as containing “motion typography”, but this and related terminology is vague or misleading – and reduces all forms of kineticism to simple motion. On-screen branding often operates more complex temporal behaviours. Lack of sufficient vocabulary to describe such transformations has forced practitioners to describe their work in terms of previously existing work, thereby limiting the perceived scope of their ideas and the possibility of innovation. This paper resolves the lack of existing vocabulary by providing new definitions of four categories of fluid transformation that appear in contemporary television idents.

Describes the Asian Librarians and Arts Officers Group (ALAG) aims as to improve library and arts services to the Asian communities present in Britain including the varied needs of people from the Indian sub‐continent. Notes that information on the diversity between countries, cultures and communities is disseminated through leaflets, stock provision and “cultural awareness” training. Covers ALAG′s views on anti‐racism and their future training courses.
The National Centre for Information Media and Technology (CIMTECH) is developing a full text database of optical disc trade literature and journal articles. The database will be held on a WORM (write once, read many) disc and it will be used to investigate the economic, technical and administrative issues associated with the application of writable discs in library and information sciences. There will be opportunities to see demonstrations of the system throughout the course of the project. Contact: Tony Hendley, CIMTECH, Hatfield Polytechnic, College Lane, Hatfield, Herts AL10 9AB (Tel. 07072 79691).
A new‐type environmental test chamber with special capabilities for the temperature testing of optical missile guidance systems has been developed by Aerophysics Development Corporation, a subsidiary of Curtiss‐Wright Corporation, at Santa Barbara, California.

TRIS (trials support measure) is a European Commission (EC)‐funded activity involved with co‐ordinating 25 EC‐funded “take‐up trial projects” to increase their impact and exploit their results. The take‐up trial projects, all of them now completed, involved the application of new technologies in 80 cultural institutions in Europe and have contributed to cultural innovation. After introducing the general context of the EC’s cultural heritage sector within which TRIS and the take‐up trial projects have been funded, this article describes a selection of these projects, clustered according to their particular relevance to the world of museums, open‐air sites, libraries and archive institutions. The paper then provides an overview of the technologies with which the projects have experimented.

As part of a more extensive study designed to establish the characteristics of women who have succeeded in the male‐dominated world of management and entrepreneurship three questionnaires were used to assess gender identity, creative style and political style. These characteristics are thought to have a fundamental influence upon the career behaviour of women. Three main objectives are put forward: first, to present a number of ideas about the possible political style, creative style and gender identity of women managers and entrepreneurs; secondly, to present a discussion of the findings and their significance in relation to the behaviour of women at work and, finally, to attempt to illustrate that all three measures identify a common characteristic, that is, “independence of thought” which it is suggested may be essential for women operating in the male‐dominated world of work.
The following classified, annotated list of titles is intended to provide reference librarians with a current checklist of new reference books, and is designed to supplement the RSR review column, “Recent Reference Books,” by Frances Neel Cheney. “Reference Books in Print” includes all additional books received prior to the inclusion deadline established for this issue. Appearance in this column does not preclude a later review in RSR. Publishers are urged to send a copy of all new reference books directly to RSR as soon as published, for immediate listing in “Reference Books in Print.” Reference books with imprints older than two years will not be included (with the exception of current reprints or older books newly acquired for distribution by another publisher). The column shall also occasionally include library science or other library related publications of other than a reference character.
