From the O. J. Simpson case to the CSI franchise, more and more of us are aware of and curious about the world of forensic science. Cynthia Holt takes that interest and directs it toward the literature that supports and defines the study of how evidence is discovered at a crime scene, interpreted in a lab, and used in a court of law. Her bibliography, grouped by type of material, covers topics such as ballistics, DNA analysis, entymology, expert witnessing, and facial imaging/reconstruction, as well as contributions from academic fields such as anthropology, linguistics, and engineering.

The term library and information sciences was not in widespread use in my formative years, and it took some serendipity to find my way to it. Much has changed since then, but in some ways, I believe, the field is still evolving and still not well enough defined. Let me tell you first how I found my way to it and then tell you where I think we are today. Along the way, I hope to expand your view of the field and the exciting opportunities available within it. It seems that I have always been interested in how people find and use information. Among my earliest memories are happy times spent with my grandfather, a retired teacher/entrepreneur, who somehow managed to convey his zeal for acquiring the latest facts in our frequent trips to the library in the park across the street from our house in Elmhurst, Illinois. These adventures got across to me a connection between the library and information, a recurring theme in my life. Another area of interest entered my life in high school, when a friend’s father went to a seminar on automatic data processing, as it was then called, and its use in actuarial work. He gave me the big binder of information he received and told me that this was the field for me. I found the contents fascinating and added computer science to my interests. Undergraduate majors at the University of Dayton—which I attended—included mathematics and computer sciences, which in those days were closely linked since computer science had an emphasis on the approaches to analyzing numerical data. I enjoyed both mathematics and computer science but also found pleasure in a broad range of other subjects. Whatever I studied, I found myself most interested in how information was generated, how it was accessed, and what people did with it. Thus, it was reasonably clear to me at graduation from the University of Dayton that I wanted to work with information but not so clear how to do that. It was my good fortune to find an article about a field called information science and to have the author of that article answer my inquiry about prospects in the field with a long letter of advice. There were, in fact, he said, graduate schools at which I could learn about information science and a wide variety of jobs available to me after completing my graduate studies. It seemed that I was on track. I chose one of the schools that he had recommended, the University of Maryland, and obtained a wonderful education at the School of Library and Information

When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals. This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of The Craft of Research. Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. A Manual for Writers also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project. Through eight decades and millions of copies, A Manual for Writers has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.

Here is an essential introductory guide on all aspects of law librarianship written especially for non-law librarians, library school students, and beginning law librarians. Although there are several excellent practical handbooks and numerous articles on specific topics of law librarianship for practicing law librarians, Basics of Law Librarianship is the only resource that addresses the information needs of the student or new law librarian. Author Deborah Panella, managing librarian of a large, prominent New York law firm, explores the major areas of law librarianship. She covers vital topics such as the legal clientele, collection development, research tools, technical services, impact of technology, and management issues, and describes what makes law libraries different from other special libraries. She has written a clear, readable volume without excessive detail or the use of special terminology. The bibliography of law library literature and the index add enormously to the book's value as a major reference.

Als glUckliche Bestimmung gilt es mir heute, da das Schicksal mir zum Geburtsort gerade Braunau am Inn zuwies. Liegt doch dieses StAdtchen an der Grenze jener zwei deutschen Staaten, deren Wiedervereinigung mindestens uns JUngeren als eine mit allen Mitteln durchzufUhrende Lebensaufgabe erscheint! DeutschOsterreich mu wieder zurUck zum groen deutschen Mutterlande, und zwar nicht aus GrUnden irgendwelcher wirtschaftlichen ErwAgungen heraus. Nein, nein: Auch wenn diese Vereinigung, wirtschaftlich gedacht, gleichgUltig, ja selbst wenn sie schAdlich wAre, sie mUte dennoch stattfinden. Gleiches Blut gehOrt in ein gemeinsames Reich. Das deutsche Volk besitzt solange kein moralisches Recht zu kolonialpolitischer TAtigkeit, solange es nicht einmal seine eigenen SOhne in einem gemeinsamen Staat zu fassen vermag. Erst wenn des Reiches Grenze auch den letzten Deutschen umschliet, ohne mehr die Sicherheit seiner ErnAhrung bieten zu kOnnen, ersteht aus der Not des eigenen Volkes das moralische Recht zur Erwerbung fremden Grund und Bodens. Der Pflug ist dann das Schwert, und aus den TrAnen des Krieges erwAchst fUr die Nach welt das tAgliche Brot. So scheint mir dieses kleine GrenzstAdtchen das Symbol einer groen Aufgabe zu sein.

En psykologisk relationsroman om ett äktenskap, livslögner och hur långt en kvinna är beredd att gå för att behålla det hon anser vara hennes ... Jodi och Todd har levt tillsammans i över tjugo år. De har fortfarande känslor för varandra, men den flammande passionen har sedan länge lämnat plats för ett väl inövat rollspel, med åtskilliga kompromisser och tysta eftergifter. Jodi har lärt sig att se mellan fingrarna med Todds ständiga otrohet och slagit sig till ro i den bedrägligt bekväma tillvaro som hans framgångsrika fastighetsaffärer bekostar. Hon är psykoterapeut, men tar bara emot några få, inte alltför ansträngande, patienter och har därför gott om tid att träna pilates, odla kryddor, umgås med hunden Freud och servera Todd middagar när han kommer hem – om han kommer hem. Jodi har vandrat förnekelsens väg under många år, och hon varken tror eller hoppas på en förändring. Men när Todd inleder ett förhållande med den unga Natasha går han ett steg för långt. Den välpolerade fasad Jodi arbetat så hårt för att upprätthålla rasar ihop och makarna dras nu in i ett psykologiskt maktspel där insatserna är betydligt högre än vad någon av dem kunnat ana. Och det är först nu som Todd på allvar inser vem hans en gång så fogliga hustru egentligen är ... Hustrun är en mästerligt konstruerad psykologisk roman om hur ett mångårigt äktenskap faller samman, och de inre mekanismer som kan förvandla även den mest kontrollerade människan till en hänsynslös mördare. En 65-årig debutant som avled strax innan hennes bok publicerades spås bli nästa stora thrillerhajp. A. S. A. Harrisons ”The silent wife” har jämförts med Gillian Flynns storsäljare ”Gone girl”.

Dies ist die bewegende Geschichte des Höhenbergsteigers Greg Mortenson: Er scheiterte dramatisch am K2, wurde von Pakistanis gerettet und gesund gepflegt. Er verspricht, zurückzukehren und eine Schule für jene zu errichten, die in dieser so unwirtlichen Welt auf über 3000 Metern am meisten entbehren: die Kinder. Und er hält Wort. Seitdem widmet er sein Leben dem Aufbau von Schulen und Krankenhäusern in Pakistan und Afghanistan.
