Yesterday, I submitted a ‘letter to myself’​ to my past self as part of an upcoming event at Lincoln’s Drill Hall. Reflection ought to be embedded into our personal and work lives so that it becomes part of our daily routine. If not, why not? I find that reflective practice helps me change, if not always for the better, I always believe that I’m going forward. Life is about learning afterall. Some criticise that reflection is too backward-looking, turning over historical events in an already over-ploughed field; or simply navel-gazing (at worst). I disagree, but then I would. As Socrates (allegedly) said at his (less than unfortunate) trial: “An un-examined life is not worth living”.

N. B. I’ve embedded these slides from a code I retrieved from my account on Scribd, the document sharing platform. PS. It’s the free version!

Following on from Charlotte Hogg’s triumphant lecture last week, the University has managed another coup. This time, Juergen Maier, the Chief Executive of Siemens in the UK, is to speak at the Lincoln International Business School on the topic of Industrial Digitalisation – a major opportunity for the UK economy. This takes place on Monday 20th March, from 3PM in DCB 1101 – Main Lecture Theatre . Siemens, of course, is undeniably the industrial powerhouse of Lincoln and offers potential life-changing student placements. To book your place on this unmissable event go to:

Please be advised we now have access to Proquest Dissertations & Theses Global , an addition that replaces the previous much smaller collection of Proquest Dissertations & Theses (UK & Ireland). This resource has been added to our Electronic Journals A-to-Z and Database list. The database also includes a banner of what looks like the swankiest restaurant in the world, no doubt situated in Milan or somewhere similar, and designed to attract the most discerning researcher.

You need to select the “Full Text” option in order to search for entire theses. It’s an astonishing collection: for a full text search on ‘entrepreneurship characteristics’, 43,198 results were recorded; some of which included Mercidee Curry’s Students’ perceptions of entrepreneurship at a historically black university in central Mississippi (Mississippi State University, 2012) and Susan J. Stevenson’s Entrepreneurial characteristics: The phenomenological study of the perceived characteristics that influence women to pursue entrepreneurship (Capella University, 2010). What will you find?

Proquest Dissertations & Theses (UK & Ireland) is a wonderful complement to ETHOS, which is the British Library’s collection of PhD Theses.

 

 

Hot off the press! A new poster for my Lincoln International Business School drop-in session has just been printed to advertise when I’m sitting at one of the tables near Starbucks on the ground floor of the David Chiddick building from 10-11 am every Wednesday.

Fresh on the heels of yesterday’s post about following the University of Lincoln’s Repository (@eprintslincoln) it may be worth checking out what’s included in the archive. I found that  it was easier to find items by searching University Structure and then scrolling down to find that the Lincoln Business School (1151) has the most uploads on the system, with the University of Lincoln amassing 13355 records in all, and an incredible 502 for this year so far (1112 for 2015). See below for a screenshot of how the Repository structure looks. Alternatively, there is a detailed advanced search facility on the home page and a useful Latest Additions to the Lincoln Repository option there too. For instance, Matthew Cragoe’s (2016) The Church of England and the enclosure of England’s Open Fields: a Northamptonshire case study. International Journal of Regional and Local History, 11 (1). pp. 17-30 was uploaded only yesterday.

Now the summer has arrived (or almost) it’s time for a refresh of the Business & Law Librarian blog. I hope you like it. I’ve gone with the blend of a metropolitan skyline at night (Brisbane, if you’re wondering) and of course, a library-themed background. Studying for the future leitmotif. I like it as it looks fresh and colourful (well, I would say that as I designed it!)

2015-16 has been our most successful year so far from the number of students requests from students for our super More Books service.
