However, you will still be able to access The Economist via our subscription to ABI/Inform without embargo.

Some of you, like me, have been experiencing problems accessing Science Direct. A message saying ‘Sorry, your request can’t be processed due to a system problem’ appears when you try to log on.  However, if you select the ‘Search’ tab at the top of the screen then you should be able to use the database without hindrance. The problem has been reported and we hope that it is resolved shortly.

The library will be opening 24/5 from 4 March – 30 March and 22 April – 11 May (to cover the revision period).

This means that from noon on Sunday until 10pm on Friday the Library will be open continuously to give you more time to study, use resources or just find a quiet place to take some time out.

 

 

Box of Broadcasts is a shared off-air recording and media archive service where subscribers (the University of Lincoln is this case) can record forthcoming television and radio programmes as well as retrieving programmes from the previous week.

You can set up an account to request programmes and create clips to embed into Blackboard. Logging into the site on the Portal is slightly unusual – for details see Paul Stainthorp’s blog post:

Owing to last year’s success, Blackwell’s bookshop will be returning to the Library on Monday 9th January.  Students recieve 5% discount from any purchase.

Core textbooks are stocked as well as secondhand titles.

Owing to recent subscription changes, we no longer have access to mad.co.uk on the e-library but we retain subscription to its journals, Design Week (available in Business Source Complete and Centaur Communications Limited) and Creative Review  (Business Source Complete and Centaur Communication Limited).

Discussion about money and football has dominated the headlines since Murdoch’s Sky Sports cash injection into Premier League TV rights during the 90s. Likewise, there’s been a lot of student-led demand for football and business books lately, and one of our latest purchases, Dobson & Goddard’s 2011 popular eBook The economics of football offers academic economic insight into the ‘beautiful game’. There’s so much here for any business student interested in football, not only covering English football, but across the globe, including Germany and Brazil. If you want to learn about determining players’ salaries at the top flight, forecasting models for football match results, game theory and football games, the accumulative match day income of the ‘Big Four’, the much-debated phenomenon of referee behaviour at football matches, measuring managerial influence upon club performance, betting-odds, and of course, the economic impact of the World Cup mega-event, then access this book via the Library Catalogue (www.library.lincoln.ac.uk) search for the title.
