It's social science -- the science of understanding people's needs and their unique relationship with art, literature, history, music, work, philosophy, community, technology, and psychology. The act of design is structuring and creating that balance.’<br />Clement Mok<br />ALISS 2011<br />|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||<br />

  25. 25. How does SAGE see the future and how are we preparing for it?<br />
  26. 26. A reminder of our vision<br /> Believing passionately that engaged scholarship lies at the heart of any healthy society and that education is intrinsically valuable, SAGE aims to be the world's leading independent academic and professional publisher. This means playing a creative role in society by disseminating teaching and research on a global scale, the cornerstones of which are good, long-term relationships, a focus on our markets, and an ability to combine quality and innovation.<br />

This includes making sure I have access to key texts as well as reading around my subject area. I am a sophisticated researcher, employing Boolean search techniques to find exactly what I want and using alerts to ensure I do not miss the latest publications and citations. I will try to find texts online first, I mainly study from home and do not have time to frequently visit the library.<br />Related links<br />Arrives at publisher site via link to a new ebook<br />Looking for a specific text (by title, author)<br />TOC alert<br />Cite<br />Narrow search<br />Goal:I need to be able to browse and search the ebooks in a sophisticated and sensible way.

I am moderately comfortable working online and am happy to learn about new tools so long as it is not time consuming. I have attended various training sessions at the library on how to use ebook platforms and referencing managers. I try to save any e-content whenever possible for ease of access in the future. I typically print out ebooks that I am most interested in. Initially I trawled through the available ebooks to see what is available on my research topic. Now, I check for any new material and other content covering related topics that I am studying.<br />Serendipitous browsing<br />Refining results<br />Related links<br />TOC alert<br />Cite<br />TOC alert<br />Cite<br />
