Abstract

I should very much like to have an idea of what the vegetation on the island was like, how it might be improved and what use could be made of it. A most valuable book would be Rhind's Vegetable Kingdom — A History of the Vegetable Kingdom by W. Rhind, Blackie and Son, Glasgow. Revised edition 1855. This book I have at home and find a most useful one to consult. Not only is it full of information but some of the lithoprints are delightful.

Abstract

Health foods have become big business in the UK and the market is dominated by four companies. Sales of health foods have risen from £11 million in 1965 to £18 million in 1970 and are still increasing with over 600 health food shops. These foods have been given considerable publicity in the popular press yet any consideration of them should be inseparable from food chemicals, food additives and processed foods. The nutritional merits of health foods are still being argued and many of the claims for their advantages have yet to be objectively proved.

Abstract

The best access to the literature of agriculture is perhaps provided by reference tools serving other disciplines, specifically, biology and chemistry. Blanchard suggested this in 1967; it is my opinion that the same is true today. This is not to say that there are no good “agriculture” reference sources, for there are some excellent ones, but rather to emphasize the need for the agriculture librarian to be well‐versed in other scientific disciplines.

Abstract

In the oils and fats industry, development is less likely to mean the conception of entirely new food products, and more the modification of the naturally‐found oils and fats so that they are rendered more useful and versatile as ingredients for other food products.

Abstract

The National Association for Health, founded in 1960, acts as an independent advisory body on matters affecting public health, especially with regard to food. In May 1978, its members held a symposium to debate whether it was possible, desirable and practicable for dietary goals to be formulated for the UK, in view of present day eating habits and nutritional requirements.

Abstract

In this chapter, we focus on the three examples of ‘destructive’ art by contemporary artists Ai Weiwei, Michael Landy and Banksy to unpack issues of dematerialisation. By adopting the lens of object-oriented ontology, we reveal the hidden agency of artworks as objects. We find that artworks are charismatic objects that are alive to infinite possibilities and interpretations. As this meaning changes over time, we argue that any attempt at measuring or pinpointing cultural value is bound to fail. Instead, we suggest a need for further consideration of how art can operate as a hypo-object, presenting us with new perspectives on the world.

Abstract

Purpose

The historical study aims to trace moves towards professionalising university teaching in the era of post‐war expansion in higher education using the University of Auckland, New Zealand, as the specific case study.

Design/methodology/approach

The historical analysis draws from published papers and original documents chronicling the state of teaching abilities in New Zealand in the late 1950s and 1960s and also draws from the University of Auckland's own archives.

Findings

University teaching by the early 1970s was no longer a private matter. Facing greater accountability from the New Zealand government and university students over the quality of teaching, New Zealand universities responded by creating professional development units to enhance the teaching capabilities of their academic staff.

Originality/value

This case study adds to the emerging histories of higher education academic and staff development units in Australasia and the United Kingdom. It demonstrates the growing realisation amongst academics, students and policy makers in the 1960s that lecturers could not be entirely left to their own devices given the potential harm poor teaching could have on student performance.

Abstract

An overview of the various selection tools currently available for building a better jazz recording collection on compact disc. Evaluative guides, select discographies, general reference works, reviews in periodicals, and World Wide Web sites are suggested to aid in this process. Together, these resources can aid librarians and media selectors in building well‐rounded collections that cover different styles and movements of jazz over the last century, from the latest reissues of albums of historical importance to the best in contemporary recordings. The author concludes with a list of 30 (or so) sound recordings that should be found in any core jazz collection.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to study the development of the Liverpool Knowledge Quarter Sustainability Network (KQSN). It outlines the sectors included in the collaborative knowledge-sharing, the nature of the work it facilitates, and considers how the network can transform its existing objectives around the shared vision of the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Design/methodology/approach

The KQSN operates in a collaborative cross-sectoral forum to support, facilitate or coordinate projects around sustainability, with core leads sitting in higher education and health care.

Findings

The KQSN supports projects through collaborative activity and enables members to access specialist advice available through the network. Through its membership, the KQSN is primed to develop metrics for demonstrating Knowledge Quarter SDG-aligned activity. The KQSN has scope to increase its level of implementation arising from its shared values, with a renewed focus around the SDGs.

Practical implications

This paper contributes to the 2018 EAUC Annual Conference theme of “Collaborations for Change” and the need for transformative partnerships that are prepared to align their mission to the SDGs.

Originality/value

Unlike discipline- or sector-specific networks, the KQSN has an inclusive membership, making it an original multi-disciplinary sustainability platform for neighbouring organisations in and around Liverpool's Knowledge Quarter. This case study can support other knowledge cluster communities to replicate its model. This case study also presents a diverse range of small projects, which are easily replicable and hopefully will inspire others to do something similar.
