Information Science as an Interscience Book Review:

Science is first and foremost an intellectual activity, an activity of thought. Therefore, how do we, as information scientists, respond intellectually to what is happening in the world of information and knowledge development, given the context of new sociocultural and knowledge landscapes? Information Science as an Interscience poses many challenges both to information science, philosophy and to information practice, and only when information science is understood as an interscience that operates in a multifaceted way, will it be able to comply with these challenges. In the fulfilment of this task it needs to be accompanied by a philosophical approach that will take it beyond the merely critical and linear approach to scientific work. For this reason a critical philosophical approach is proposed that will be characterised by multiple styles of thinking and organised by a compositional inspiration. This initiative is carried by the conviction that information science will hereby be enabled to make contributions to significant knowledge inventions that may bring about a better world. Chapters focus on the rethinking of human thinking, our unique ability that enables us to cope with the world in which we live, in terms of the unique science with which we are involved. Subsequent chapters explore different approaches to the establishment of a new scientific spirit, the demands these developments pose for human thinking, for questions of method and the implications for information science regarding its proposed functioning as a nomad science in the context of information practice and information work. Final chapters highlight the proposed responsibility of focusing on information and inventiveness and new styles of information and knowledge work. focuses on rethinking information science to achieve a constructive scientific approach provides an alternative methodological approach in the study of information science shows how a change in scientific approach will have vast implications for the understanding and dissemination of knowledge presents the implications of a new approach for knowledge workers, and the dynamics of their work explores the future of thinking about science, knowledge and its nature and the ethical implications

From Documentation to Information Science Book Review:

This work charts the history of the American Society for Information Science, originally begun in 1937 as the American Documentation Institute. Beginning with the post-World War I period that preceded the creation of ADI and the professional and technological climate that led up to the institute's formation, Farkas-Conn traces the organization's development and its restructuring in response to changes in society and technology. Important questions such as whether the institute was, and still, is technology driven are also addressed.

Information Cosmopolitics Book Review:

Information Cosmopolitics explores interaction between nationalist and information sharing practices in academic communities with a view to understanding the potential impacts of these interactions. This book is also a resounding critique of existing theories and methods as well as the launching point for the proposition of an alternate approach. Dominant approaches in the Information Behaviour (IB) field are investigated, as well as questions existing theoretical approaches to nationalism and cosmopolitanism. The concept of information cosmopolitics is introduced as an approach for tracing information practices and enabling research participants to perform their own narratives and positionings, and that the focus of information studies should be on tracing the continuous circulation of processes of individualisation and collectivization. Provide an alternative to the dominant approaches in the field of Information Behaviour Offers a novel theoretical model to trace information practices Questions existing approaches to nationalism and cosmopolitanism

Reviews in Computational Chemistry Book Review:

Computational chemistry is increasingly used in most areas ofmolecular science including organic, inorganic, medicinal,biological, physical, and analytical chemistry. Researchers inthese fields who do molecular modelling need to understand and staycurrent with recent developments. This volume, like those prior toit, features chapters by experts in various fields of computationalchemistry. Two chapters focus on molecular docking, one of whichrelates to drug discovery and cheminformatics and the other toproteomics. In addition, this volume contains tutorials onspin-orbit coupling and cellular automata modeling, as well as anextensive bibliography of computational chemistry books. FROM REVIEWS OF THE SERIES "Reviews in Computational Chemistryremains the most valuable reference to methods and techniques incomputational chemistry."—JOURNAL OF MOLECULAR GRAPHICS ANDMODELLING "One cannot generally do better than to try to find anappropriate article in the highly successful Reviews inComputational Chemistry. The basic philosophy of the editors seemsto be to help the authors produce chapters that are complete,accurate, clear, and accessible to experimentalists (in particular)and other nonspecialists (in general)."—JOURNAL OF THEAMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
