Duke University Press: new ebooks for 2018

ebooks@cambridge

Raymond Knapp traces the musical legacy of German Idealism as it led to the declining prestige of composers such as Haydn while influencing the development of American popular music in the nineteenth century, in Making Light: Haydn, Musical Camp, and the Long Shadow of German Idealism, published recently by Duke University Press.        making light

Knapp identifies in Haydn and in early popular American musical cultures such as minstrelsy and operetta a strain of high camp—a mode of engagement that relishes both the superficial and serious aspects of an aesthetic experience—that runs antithetical to German Idealism’s musical paradigms. Making Light is just one of 35 new titles published so far in 2018, now available on the Duke University Press Books platform for University of Cambridge registered users, thanks to continued funding by the University Library.

Open Access coming to iDiscover?

ejournals@cambridge

Developments over December 2017 and January 2018 may improve prospects for significant benefits to the user’s search experience in iDiscover.

Expanded your results beyond your collection in iDiscover, but hit the paywall as a result?  For some time now, you could hit your Open Access button bookmarklet and get delivery of an OA repository version.   Rather than extend search from outside with a tool, a new agreement should maximise search to discovery to delivery, dramatically decreasing the pain of that journey for users.   Over 2018, we should see the integration of Primo (iDiscover) with CORE, making available in the University’s discovery service many millions of records for OA research articles, following the new partnership of the CORE service with Ex Libris.

The agreement has been described on the JISC involve blog here:

The aggregated content includes metadata (currently 90m records) and open access research outputs hosted in…

Oxford Bibliographies Online: Political Science

ejournals@cambridge

Access is now available to the Oxford Bibliography Online in Political Science via this link.

View a lively discussion with Editor in Chief of Oxford Bibliographies in Political Science Sandy Maisel, as he discusses his involvement with the project and the importance of Oxford Bibliographies to students and researchers worldwide.

Political science is the study of the struggle by humans to gain and use power and authority for useful or destructive reasons. Political scientists analyze this struggle within and among nations using a variety of methodological tools and theoretical concepts and in a variety of sub-disciplines and specialties. It is imperative that students, scholars and professionals stay abreast of new discoveries, new interpretations, and new theoretical ideas. The overlapping fields of practice that come together in the study of political science make it challenging to stay informed about every applicable area. The task is made more difficult because a…
