Successful Enquiry Answering Every Time, 7th edition
Thinking your way from problem to solution
TIM BUCKLEY OWEN
May 2017 | 192 pp |
Paperback
Facet Publishing | 9781783301935 | £49.95

This book guides the reader step-by-step through all stages of the research process, from finding out what the enquirer really wants, to providing a polished, actionable, value-added answer.

Continuously in print since 1996, and now in its seventh edition, Successful Enquiry Answering Every Time has evolved to focus on the information professional’s role in encouraging information literacy, managing the desk research process, and presenting research results effectively.

The book takes account of every technological development that has impacted on the research process, including social media, mobile communications and the exponential expansion of images as potential sources of information.

Using technology as the enabler of the thought processes that information professionals need to engage in during the enquiry answering process, the book makes the case that new
technology, far from making them irrelevant, raises the skill stakes for all information professionals.

This new edition has been fully updated to cover new skills, such as:
*
employing critical analysis to manipulate, categorise and prioritise raw search results
* using strategic reading and abstracting techniques to identify and summarise the essential information the enquirer needs from the retrieved documents
* drawing on established story-telling techniques to present research results effectively – whether orally or in writing
* working to the POWER model: plan, organise, write, edit, review.

Severe Plastic Deformation Technology
A. Rosochowski
9781849950916 | 272 pp | £95.00
Whittles Publishing | Hb | January 2017

This book is the first to cover the engineering aspects of severe plastic deformation (SPD) technology used to refine grain structure in metallic materials. The fundamentals of both the well-known and novel SPD processes are explained and the engineering know-how required for successful implementation of these processes revealed. The principles of each SPD technique are explained and insight provided into the mechanics of material deformation and microstructural changes. The equipment used for SPD processing is described including machines and tools.
The book covers the most popular SPD process of equal channel angular pressing, ECAP and its incremental version, I-ECAP. A separate chapter is devoted to tooling used in ECAP/I-ECAP. Another popular SPD process is high pressure torsion (HPT), which produces very good results in terms of refining grain structure but faces some technical challenges. A less known SPD process is cyclic extrusion compression (CEC), which is thoroughly explained as is twist extrusion (TE) which is a relatively new process that is showing good potential. Finally, an original SPD process of accumulated roll bonding (ARB), capable of refining grain structure in sheets, is discussed.
The book is intended for students and researchers working in the field of refining grain structure of metals by SPD. By explaining the engineering aspects of SPD, it enables the best SPD process to be chosen for a given application thus avoiding time-consuming and wasteful trials. It also encourages metal forming researchers and material scientists to work together in order to improve existing and develop new SPD processes. Finally, this book is also for industrial engineers, who will ultimately be using the SPD technology for mass production of metals with refined grain structure and improved properties.

Linked Data for Cultural Heritage
Edited by ED JONES and MICHELE SEIKEL
Facet Publishing ~ Pb ~ October 2016
9781783301621 | 160 pp | £59.95

This book gathers a stellar list of contributors to help readers understand linked data concepts by examining practice and projects based in libraries, archives, and museums.

Linked open data remains very much a work in progress, and much of the progress has taken place within the domain of the cultural heritage institutions: libraries, archives, and museums.

There is no question that the structure of linked data, and the machine inferencing it supports, shows great promise for discoverability. What will be the ‘killer app’ that breaks linked open data out to the wider world and accelerates its uptake? Perhaps it will be a project described in this volume.

Content covered includes:
*
a very simple description of linked data, summing up its promises and challenges
* a survey of the use of linked data in significant projects across the cultural heritage domain, including Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)
* practical discussion of migrating a catalogue from a MARC environment to one of linked data and the possibilities that open up in terms of the broader scholarly community
* reviewing and reimagining library thesauri, metadata schemas, and information discovery, to look at how controlled vocabularies integrate library practice with linked data
* an examination of the role of authority control, identifiers and vocabularies, including use of the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the SPARQL query language
* Carol Jean Godby describes OCLC’s experiments with Schema.org as the foundation for a model of library resource description expressed as linked data
* the development of the Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) data model and a description of the fundamental differences between MARC and BIBFRAME.

 

 

 

Conceptual Structural Design: Bridging the Gap between Architects and Engineers, 2nd edition
Olga Popovic Larsen

ICE Publishing | October 2016 | 240 pages
9780727761101 ~ Pb ~ £40.00

Conceptual Structural Design aims to ‘bridge the gap’ between engineers’ and architects’ understanding of structural form and highlight the importance of close collaboration between all members of the design team throughout a project.

This book is presented in two parts. The first part is theoretical and investigates source of inspiration for developing structural form, learning from natural forms, applying our own intuition, seeking inspiration from precedents, applying understanding of structural principles, developing design through physical models, and using new design tools, construction methods and materials to develop new structural forms. The second part of the book is presented through a selection of case studies which include interviews with the design teams.

Conceptual Structural Design, Second edition:
- Describes the immense development in design tools, construction methods and materials and how these have impacted upon the way designers think, perceive and design structures,
- Reflects on the development in knowledge, skills and opportunities which affect the design team and the importance of embracing sustainability agendas.
- Includes a selection of case studies which outline architects’ experiences from real projects and how they collaborated with engineers from the early stages of design.
