In 1998 Routledge published the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, which is held in MILLS Reference (Call No.: B 51 .R68 1998 v.1-v.10). The first multi-volume Encyclopedia to be published in the discipline in over thirty years, REP is now regarded as the definitive resource in the field. The Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy editorial team then began work on a fully searchable and extensively cross-referenced dynamic Web version, the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online .
REP Online expands this acclaimed Encyclopedia well beyond print reference boundaries. The full content of the classic 10-volume set remains at its core, but REP Online is also a living, growing resource designed to grow along with the discipline itself. Taking full advantage of the flexibility of the Web format, each year the REP editorial team brings a diverse range of new material, including newly commissioned entries by leading scholars, making REP Online the essential philosophy reference for faculty and students in a wide range of disciplines.
As well as regular additions of new articles, REP Online also provides editorially reviewed links to other sites and resources on the web, revisions and updates of key entries, and periodic upgrades of the user environment. In keeping with the 1998 print set's tradition of first class editorial work and unparalleled breadth of subject matter, all new and revised entries are carefully integrated into the REP style and format and are connected to earlier material by the same kind and level of cross-referencing.
The print journal Contemporary Psychology has been replaced by an online version entitled PsycCRITIQUES which is now available through the library.
Each week PsycCRITIQUES releases 15 or more reviews of current books and films. In addition, the database contains book reviews previously published back to 1995.
The Library has made a proposal to the University Planning Committee to create a Knowledge Commons (working title) in the Mills Library.
If fully realized the Commons would become an integrated learning facility with up to 200 wired computers, wireless access for up to 120 simultaneous users, 6 collaborative study rooms and 79 lounge seats.
The Concept and Feasibility Study, artists' drawings and proposed floor plans are available on the Knowledge Commons web page.
A working group has been established to explore what kinds of services might be offered in the Knowledge Commons environment-and how those services would be provided.
Got an idea? We'd like to hear it.
