New Directions in Human Information Behavior, co-edited by Drs. Amanda Spink and Charles Cole provides an understanding of the new directions, leading edge theories and models in human information behavior. Information behavior is conceptualized as complex human information related processes that are embedded within an individual’s everyday social and life processes. The book presents chapters by an interdisciplinary range of scholars who show new directions that often challenge the established views and paradigms of information behavior studies. Beginning with an evolutionary framework, the book examines information behaviors over various epochs of human existence from the Palaeolithic Era and within pre-literate societies, to contemporary behaviors by 21st century humans. Drawing upon social and psychological science theories the book presents a more integrated and holistic approach to the understanding of information behaviors that include multitasking and non-linear longitudinal processes, individuals’ information ground, information practices and information sharing, digital behaviors and human information organizing behaviors. The final chapter of the book integrates these new approaches and presents an overview of the key trends, theories and models for further research. This book is directly relevant to information scientists, librarians, social and evolutionary psychologists. Undergraduate and graduate students, academics and information professionals interested in human information behavior will find this book of particular benefit.

The concept of resilience is introduced for the reader to contemplate their personal contribution in creating an environment that is conducive to protecting the wellbeing of themselves and colleagues within the workplace.

To practice effectively, midwives need to continually update their knowledge of pregnancy and birth. This fully revised and updated new edition of The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook is a practical and accessible guide to providing midwifery care while promoting 'women-centred' care and normality. It explores important questions such as: Why are women not encouraged to make a birth plan for elective CS? If a VBAC woman declines continuous CTG monitoring then why shouldn’t she use a waterbirth pool? If shoulder dystocia is anticipated, why not encourage all-fours birth in preference to a semi-recumbent position? Why are the needs of the delivering professional so often put before the advantages of upright postures for promoting descent of a second twin? This new edition incorporates the latest research and national guidelines, and includes new chapters on twins, caesarean section, bullying, risk management and IOL. By bringing together the latest midwifery information in a woman-centred way, The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook is an essential guide for both student midwives and experienced practising midwives.
