Test period of The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Strategic Management


Category : Nyheter E-resurser Samhällsvetenskap Juridik

Until 22/2, you have the opportunity to test a new database with a focus on strategic management.

The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Strategic Management is a reference work for students, teachers, researchers and practitioners who want to understand the main ideas and issues in strategic management. The database is based on the well-known reference work, The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and consists of more than 700 signed articles.

The database provides a comprehensive overview of the field: its history, schools, programs and biographies of key employees. It addresses both theoretical and more empirically oriented aspects of strategic management.

The encyclopaedia is updated monthly online and new content adds to the collection regularly. Updates are available via Palgrave Connect.

Welcome to the library introduction on January 20


Category : Nyheter Aktuella kurser E-resurser

Spend one hour and save a hundred – come to our library introduction for new students on Tuesday January 20, at 12.00.

Learn how find, order and borrow literature and to use the other services the library can offer.

The introduction is held on the stage, to the right from the entrance. It takes about 55 minutes, (including a tour around the library), and it can be combined with the guided tour around campus starting 11.00 or 13.00.

No registration is needed.

Why should you attend this introduction? Because it covers so much more than just finding and borrowing a book, i.e.
- Book group study rooms
- Printing and copying
- Find an article in one of our 45 600 e-journals
- How to access 345 databases containing text, images, video, old newspapers, theater scripts…
But it does cover printed books too. We have 2 500 000 books. Our best tricks for finding the right one will be useful.

Introductions in Swedish are held on Thursday January 22, at 12.00 and 14.00.

Updated: Stockholm University Library chooses Koha!


Category : Nyheter

The free and open source system Koha will replace the current library system Voyager, after a decision by the library management in December 2014. Koha will serve as the circulation module in a larger system architecture where the national LIBRIS system is a key component.

The reason for this decision is that the current system is old and no longer developed to any great extent. In 2014, various alternatives were evaluated, focusing on two possible ways forward: to tender a new circulation system or to implement an open source solution. Since it appeared that there was no separate circulation system to acquire, instead requiring the library to tender a complete integrated system (ILS), the focus turned to the open source trail, where Koha emerged as the favored option.

During the fall of 2014 Koha have been tested and evaluated, and found to meet the needs and requirements that the library have of a circulation system. The goal is to implement Koha at the library late 2015.

What this entails for the library include:
• Increased control of a business-critical system
• Increased development and customization possibilities
• Vendor independence
• Lower costs
