We are very pleased to report that The Teaching Professor newsletter is now available online via SFU Library.
From the publisher's website:
"Published 10 times per year, The Teaching Professor is a lively, practical newsletter with a singular purpose: to provide ideas and insights to educators who are passionate about teaching.
SFU researchers now have access to a great new online source full of details on over 30 emerging markets (Argentina to Vietnam)!
The Encyclopedia of Emerging Markets provides "articles offering rare insight into nations with social or business activity in the process of rapid growth and industrialization, as well as highlighting key emerging industries within those economies."
The SFU Library has just started a trial of the Factiva database. Factiva is a standard business and industry news source in many schools and corporations. This trial will run until July 20th.
We'd love to have your opinions on this valuable resource!

When we buy business books here at the SFU Library, we tend to focus on ebooks -- partly as a reflection of the reading habits of many of our readers, and partly so that we can support the three campuses more efficiently. However, we do still buy books in print format in many cases. I was just scanning the print format business books that have arrived this week. All three look very relevant to the questions I get lately, so I thought I'd post about them...
Every now and then I browse through one of our many business databases to see if there are any new treasures (or old treasures that I hadn't noticed before).
I was just scanning a list of upcoming Plagiarism Education Week webcasts that will be presented by Turnitin, in partnership with The International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), The School for Ethical Education (SEE), and Plagiarism Today. Some great topics will be addressed, including sev
We're at that magical time of the semester when those students in courses with no exams will finish up their last assignments, tease their exam-bound colleagues, and take off for some R&R.
If you're one of those lucky few, consider returning your library books before you leave. And if you happen to have accumulated some <ahem> fines over the term, maybe drop off some items for the SFU Food Bank to clear your account. :-)
