The spring semester is well underway, and it's time to think about books, DVDs or other one-time purchases you would like to see added to the library's collection. Please submit suggestions by mid-March through e-request or by emailing me directly so we have time to process orders before the end of the fiscal year.
I was pleased to be able to work with the GEOG 740 students on using Zotero, a free online citation management tool. If you would like to schedule a research session for your students on this or any other resources, just let me know!
ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies has been publishing open-access, scholarly articles in human geography since 2002. "The journal's purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical work about space in the social sciences - including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, feminist, Marxist, non-representational, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist and socialist perspectives." Many issues have special thematic sections covering topics such as Borders and Immigration; Gender, Space and Technology; and Geographies of Everyday Citizenship. Click here for access.
