New items on display: Journals and magazines

Each week, new purchases and the latest issues of journals, magazines and newspapers are made available for immediate use and placed on display at both Cairns and Townsville (and made available online when purchased as such). Please browse while waiting for your friends or in Townsville if you are waiting for a coffee at Juliette's.

For new books, you can subscribe to the New Books email and for some journals you can set up an online alert called a Table of Contents service.

This week two journals that caught my attention were:

Choice: Journal of the Australian Consumers' Association 
Issue November 2014
Call number: 640.73 p1
Has some great articles for academic Christmas presents like the best tablets to buy on page 54. It also covers travel insurance and of course appliances like air conditioners.

Publication: Australian Copyright Council.   
Issue Nov 2014 Interactive Games & Copyright .
Call number: 346.940482 p1
A very simple explanation of copyright and clearing copyright and other related questions. Might be of interest to IT or ICT innovators.
