This new edition of the standard guide to health sciences sources is essential for students, librarians, and health professionals. Prepared with the Medical Library Association, this completely updated and revised fifth edition lists classic and up-to-the-minute print resources and helps librarians to meet customers' changing expectations for electronic versions of traditionally print reference sources, new reliable electronic-only resources, and resources that they can access from their home computers through freely available Web sites or through library licenses. The authors address questions librarians need to consider in developing and maintaining their reference collections in both the print and electronic environments, focusing on works that can be considered foundation or basic works. New contributors -- including Jean Blackwell, Feili Tu, Katherine Schilling and Tom Flemming -- provide fresh takes on organization and management of the reference collection; bibliographic sources for periodicals; indexing, abstracting, and digital database resources; U.S. government documents and technical reports; conferences, reviews, and translations; terminology; handbooks and manuals; drug information sources; and grant sources. Other chapters cover bibliographic sources for monographs, consumer health sources, medical and health statistics, directories and biographical sources, and history sources."

Developing Leadership in Primary Schools

Drawing upon a range of practical and theoretical knowledge, the authors explore all aspects of the leadership role. Professional development, collaboration and self-knowledge are at the centre of their approach, in the belief that people prefer to be led rather than to be managed and that leadership applies equally to the work of classroom teachers, as well as to the head. The purposes and processes of leading and managing primary schools, like processes of teaching and learning are complex. They defy generalized prescriptions, easy analysis and simplistic solutions. In this book the authors explore the intricate processes involved in helping people to be, and to perform, at their best, believing that excellent leaders are judged not only by outcomes, but also by the quality of their vision, their relationships, plans and policies and their commitment to growth and achievement for children and staff.

Secret Service

Political Policing in Canada From the Fenians to Fortress America

Author: Reg Whitaker,Gregory S. Kealey,Andrew Parnaby

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

ISBN: 1442662387

Category: Political Science

Page: 720

Secret Service provides the first comprehensive history of political policing in Canada – from its beginnings in the mid-nineteenth century, through two world wars and the Cold War to the more recent 'war on terror.' This book reveals the extent, focus, and politics of government-sponsored surveillance and intelligence-gathering operations. Drawing on previously classified government records, the authors reveal that for over 150 years, Canada has run spy operations largely hidden from public or parliamentary scrutiny – complete with undercover agents, secret sources, agent provocateurs, coded communications, elaborate files, and all the usual apparatus of deception and betrayal so familiar to fans of spy fiction. As they argue, what makes Canada unique among Western countries is its insistent focus of its surveillance inwards, and usually against Canadian citizens. Secret Service highlights the many tensions that arise when undercover police and their covert methods are deployed too freely in a liberal democratic society. It will prove invaluable to readers attuned to contemporary debates about policing, national security, and civil rights in a post-9/11 world.

Early English Printed Books in the University Library, Cambridge

An erudite and popular librarian, Charles Edward Sayle (1864-1924) devoted his career to cataloguing and editing rare books in the University of Cambridge. His obituary praised him as 'a fine example of the type of man who likes to catalogue things in the right order'. This catalogue of incunabula and early printed books in the University Library was his most important project. Commissioned by the Library Syndicate in 1894, the catalogue was published in four volumes between 1900 and 1907. Even upon completion, Sayle's list was not final, as the rare book collections at the Library were undergoing a period of great expansion, having grown by a third during his cataloguing work, both through purchases and by donations or bequests. This final volume indexes the books by author, printer, engraver, and place of printing, and includes a list of notable titles of particular artistic, musical or bibliographical interest.

Mad in America

Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill

Author: Robert Whitaker

Publisher: Hachette UK

ISBN: 0786723793

Category: Psychology

Page: 368

Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world's poorest countries. In Mad in America, medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920s and 1930s gave way in the 1950s to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Whitaker's most damning revelation, Mad in America examines how drug companies in the 1980s and 1990s skewed their studies to prove that new antipsychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. A haunting, deeply compassionate book—now revised with a new introduction—Mad in America raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of “insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind.
