Dear list members,
The new Resource Guide for Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism is now available to order - free of charge - via the online form at: http://www.jisc.ac.uk/resourceguides/hlst
More detailed information about the new version follows...
After extensive consultation with community representatives, including
librarians, academics, researchers and students, as well as publishers
and providers, the Resource Guide has been updated and improved.
Improvements in the new edition include:
* Attractive full-colour booklet format
* New resource categories reflecting the needs of subject communities
* New and simpler definitions for accessing electronic resources
* Full information on search tips, training and support activities
Resources and services highlighted in the JISC Resource Guide are
designed to support learning, teaching and research at all levels of
higher education. The Guide is compiled by a dedicated Resource Guide
Adviser (RGA) who selects the key resources and presents
them in both print and Web format.
In consultation with subject communities, the RGA offers a programme of outreach activities in response to subject needs, including hands-on workshops and training events. The RGA also plays a crucial role in soliciting community feedback, helping to ensure that communication about the provision and use of resources and support and advisory services remains two-way.
The Guide is compiled in consultation with subject-based advisory groups comprising librarians, academics and other relevant parties. Resources considered for inclusion include those from partner organisations, such as the Learning and Teaching Support Network for Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism (LTSN), Altis from the Resource Discovery Network (RDN) and the Research Councils.
Resource Guides for Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism are currently being sent to librarians and other key staff within institutions.
