Cd Roms At The University Of Wollongong: A Case Study, Craig Grimson

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The University of Wollongong Library purchased 21 bibliographic databases on CD-ROM during 1988, 1989 and 1990 covering the disciplines of business, psychology, medicine, geography, sociology, education, science, nursing, engineering, mathematics and occupational health and safety. The databases are available for use by all students and staff, and their use is continuing to be evaluated. The introduction of the CD··ROM service has had significant implications for library users and staff, e. g . the number of online searches has reduced, the use of serial literature has increased, the use of hard copy indexes has changed and staff involvement in the training ...


Cd Rom And Access To Information In Academic Libraries, Carole Alcock Jan 1990

Cd Rom And Access To Information In Academic Libraries, Carole Alcock

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

CD-Rom databases have been hailed as a means of avoiding the problems inherent in budgeting for online services, and hence also the need to charge for searching. However, some libraries are already considering charging for their use. This is a retrograde step. The University of Wollongong library has purchased a number of CD-ROM databases which have been enthusiastically received by both students and academic staff. At present, we do not charge for this service. Initial indications are that the introduction of CD-Rom databases has meant a slump in demand for online searches. Clearly, CD-Rom and online services could be complementary ...

Bibliographic Notes On Captain R.M. Westmacott's "Sketches In Australia", Michael K. Organ Jan 1986

Bibliographic Notes On Captain R.M. Westmacott's "Sketches In Australia", Michael K. Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

During my investigations into the life and times of Robert Marsh Westmacott (Aide-de-Camp to Governor Bourke from 1832 to 1837; artist and settler in Illawarra from 1837 to 1847), a somewhat mysterious figure like so many of our early colonial artists, I have encountered a number of variations of his published collection of eighteen tinted lithographs plus descriptive text, entitled Sketches in Australia. The question arose: is the work a true 'book' or merely a collection of lithographs? The bibliographic details for this work are described by Ferguson, 4955. However my studies have revealed a number of important variations of ...

Pioneers Of The Illawarra - A History Of The Family Of Elias Organ In Wollongong, 1839-1869, Michael K. Organ, Robert Hardy

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

This history deals with the life and times of members of the Organ family who settled in the Illawarra region in 1839. The account is based on official government records and newspaper accounts. Unlike other such histories no core of personal memorabilia including letters, documents or artifacts survives, upon which a more personal account can be constructed. Some personal reminiscences dictated by members of the family in the 1920s and '30s have been used, however they are sketchy and were only used to indicate a line of research. This detailed study focuses on the circumstances of the Organ family during ...
