New Books: Sage Handbooks

July 26, 2011

Auburn University Libraries has recently acquired these Sage handbooks in electronic form. Access them by clicking on the link when you’re on campus and login to access them when you are off.

 The Handbook of Marketing Research: Uses, Misuses, and Future Advances

 – Rajiv Grover and Marco Vriens [editors]

The Handbook of Marketing Research: Uses, Misuses, and Future Advances comprehensively explores the approaches for delivering market insights for fact-based decision making in a market-oriented firm.

 

The SAGE handbook of organizational behavior. Vol. 1, Micro approaches

- Julian Barling and Cary L. Cooper [editors]

This Handbook highlights the major topics in the field of micro-organization behavior.

The SAGE handbook of organizational behavior. Vol. 2, Macro approaches

- Stewart R. Clegg and Cary L. Cooper [editors]

Most research in organizational behavior is micro in focus, betraying the deep embeddedness of the discourse in psychology, the study of individuals. Thus, the distinctive feature of micro-organizational behavior is that it is the study of the behavior of individuals and groups in the organization, as seen from a psychological perspective.

The SAGE handbook of power

- Stewart R. Clegg and Mark Haugaard [editors]

The concept of power is absolutely central to any understanding of society… However, despite this ubiquity it is arguably one of the most difficult concepts to make sense of withing the social sciences.

The SAGE Handbook of Cultural Analysis

- Tony Bennett and John Frow [editors]

With the ‘cultural turn’, the concept of culture has assumed enormous importance in our understanding of the interrelations between social, political, and economic structures, patterns of everyday interaction, and systems of meaning-making. In The SAGE Handbook of Cultural Analysis, the leading figures in their fields explore the implications of this paradigm shift. Part I looks at the major disciplines of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences, asking how they have been reshaped by the cultural turn and how they have elaborated distinctive new objects of knowledge. Parts II and III examine the questions arising from a practice of analysis in which the researcher is drawn reflexively into the object of study and in which methodological frameworks are rarely given in advance.

Google UncleSam Gone

June 12, 2011

In case you missed the non-announcement Google has stopped supporting the Google UncleSam (or U.S. Government Search). I’ve created a custom search that limits to .gov, .mil and .state sites which will mimic in part the Google UncleSam search.

Try it out:
http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=006444040023968439261:ynbxyjszbmq

There is a search box called U.S. and State Government Search in several of my LibGuides. Try it out by going to the Comm 1000 Libguide — the search box is in the first column. Contact me if you have any questions or comments.
