Wir leben in einer Zeit, wo sich die Frage stellt, ob Bucher in Zukunft zunehmend digitalisiert angeboten werden sollen. Es gibt Vorteile, aber auch Nachteile. Wesentlich erscheint es aber heute, diese Frage aufzugreifen und den enormen technischen Fortschritt zu hinterfragen. Speziell wenn man an die Bildung und dort an die derzeit fix verankerten Schulbucher denkt. In diesem Band geht man der Frage nach, ob es aus technischer Sicht moglich und sinnvoll ist, Lehrbucher in digitaler Form anzubieten mit einem speziellen Fokus auf die Sekundarstufe. Dazu wurde zuerst ein Katalog mit Merkmalen von Schulbuchern erstellt und danach die Umsetzbarkeit in verschiedene Formate untersucht und mit unterschiedlichen heute am Markt erhaltlichen Geraten getestet. Das Ergebnis zeigt, dass zwar noch viel Forschungsarbeit notig, jedoch das Potenzial digitaler Schulbucher betrachtlich ist.

Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

Agreed standards and guidelines are the heart and soul of improving the differing training systems and to harmonize neurosurgical training in the European countries. Such standards and guidelines have been laid down in the European Training Charter of the European Union of Medical Specialists and recently novellated. This book, written by experienced neurosurgeons, offers all those concerned with neurosurgical training - trainers and trainees - practical advice to implement the above mentioned standards and recommendations. It has been written as a manual: "How to do it”. It describes the tasks of a chairman (programme director), the tasks of the teaching staff, the organisation of a training curriculum, a rotation plan or a morbidity and mortality conference, the periodic progress evaluation, the course of an external audit and many more important topics. It contains a lot of practical tips, check lists and useful examples. Well educated young colleagues offer "safe neurosurgery” to our patients.

Im Wintersemester 1995/96 hielt Marlene Streeruwitz als erste Tübinger Poetikdozentin drei Vorlesungen über die Voraussetzungen ihres Schreibens und schuf damit eine Streitschrift zur feministischen Literaturtheorie und Sprachkritik. Kurze Zeit später, im Wintersemester 1997/98, setzte die Autorin ihre Vorlesungen in Frankfurt fort, wo sie im Rahmen der von Ingeborg Bachmann 1959 eröffneten, traditionsreichen Frankfurter Poetikvorlesungen den Hörsaal betrat. Als Ergänzung zu den theoretischen Auseinandersetzungen der Tübinger Vorlesungen stehen in Frankfurt Ausdifferenzierungen und praktische Umsetzung im Zentrum. Die beiden Vorlesungszyklen werden ergänzt durch ein Gespräch mit Marlene Streeruwitz, das sich mit gegenwärtigen Positionen ihres Schreibens auseinandersetzt.
