Abstract

This is a most important study of an essentially modern situation. The first part, “Getting in Print”, introduces the way short‐run publications can be produced without sacrificing quality or being priced out of the market. There has been considerable polarisation in the publishing trade as huge multinational combines have continued to take over smaller units and now dominate the publishing, marketing and distribution of English language titles worldwide. This could well have made it difficult indeed for authors of low‐volume, less profitably saleable works to find a publisher. Paradoxically, however, helped by computer technology it has opened up the field for enterprising new small‐scale publishers, with an eye for scholarly specialist subjects and new authors, to issue short‐run editions and even to achieve a better return on capital and higher profit ratios than do the major publishers. The total number of titles produced has actually grown, causing bibliographical problems for librarians who need to keep track of publication, and greatly increasing the number of works going out of print before they can be acquired. The reprint trade is similarly in confusion because the economics of reprinting have become more chancy for some works and potentially easier for others.

Abstract

University libraries and their use of JANET (the Joint Academc Network) were the subject of a survey in March by Elizabeth Rodger, Librarian of the University of Sussex', for SCONUL's Advisory Committee on Automation Policy. Respondents were asked if and how they used the network both to access other OPACs and to send email. Those who provide OPACs on JANET were asked for details of access, service hours, catalogue coverage, and indexes provided. Replies were received from all universities in Great Britain bar six.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present an overview of the history and development of transaction log analysis (TLA) in library and information science research. Organizing a literature review of the first twenty‐five years of TLA poses some challenges and requires some decisions. The primary organizing principle could be a strict chronology of the published research, the research questions addressed, the automated information retrieval (IR) systems that generated the data, the results gained, or even the researchers themselves. The group of active transaction log analyzers remains fairly small in number, and researchers who use transaction logs tend to use this method more than once, so tracing the development and refinement of individuals' uses of the methodology could provide insight into the progress of the method as a whole. For example, if we examine how researchers like W. David Penniman, John Tolle, Christine Borgman, Ray Larson, and Micheline Hancock‐Beaulieu have modified their own understandings and applications of the method over time, we may get an accurate sense of the development of all applications.

Abstract

As part of the 2007 International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) Leadership Exchange and Conference, an international group of professionals met at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. The focus of this exchange was the behavioural health workforce, leadership projects, and models of leadership and policy. As a part of this leadership exchange the working group (Cincinnati Group) developed the following action plan. The group set as our agenda the production of some tangible projects and useful guidance for IIMHL. These are summarised in this article.

Abstract

The Executive Leadership and Management Programme (ELMP) and the advanced programme (AELMP) were founded in New Zealand in 2004. The Blueprint Centre for Learning was contracted by the then Mental Health Workforce Development Programme to develop and deliver a leadership and management programme for staff in the mental health and addictions sector. The programme is now managed under Te Pou (the National Center for Mental Health Research, Information and Workforce Development). The Blueprint Centre for Learning is the only New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and ISO 9001 accredited training provider focusing on mental health in New Zealand. Blueprint's focus is on ‘living the learning' and the organisation has a spirit of ‘passion for people and potential’. While some basic statistics indicate the success of the programmes, it is timely to conduct a more in‐depth qualitative evaluation of them. Thus, the aim of this project was to examine the outcomes (personal, professional and organisational) perceived to have occurred as a result of attending the programmes.
