This publication provides links to current news, reports, analysis, government documents, legal cases, collective
bargaining information, conference announcements, from companies, unions, universities, academics, government
bodies & agencies, non-governmental organizations, (NGOs ) and courts anything of interest available free on the
web to a widespread international community that studies, works in or is interested in the field of employment
relations. In terms of being an agent of change I think that this e-publication is valuable for these reasons:
1) It creates a community of readers
2) It packages and makes easily accessible current employment relations information on the web
3) It shapes how our communities sees us as a library – we are vitally interested and knowledgeable about current work and employment issues in today’s world
The target groups: students, alumni, academics, labour unions, government agencies, NGO’s practitioners and the Committee of Industrial Relations Librarians who represent all of the major IR/HR academic programs throughout North America. We have a body of readers of over 700 on our mailing list
The law publisher Lancaster House purchases the right to disseminate the Perry Work Report to the 1,500 subscribers to their e-publication Collective Bargaining Reporter .
CIRHR Library Information Service subscription: Subscribers are mostly from law firms, government departments, and labour unions. Subscriber numbers have been reduced as much a 50 percent in the last 5 years -- attributable to the burgeoning amount of IR/HR information available on the web. We now direct our graduates, who once became our subscribers, to the Digital Library for Alumni. The information service is not currently marketed as we do not have the staff to maintain an acceptable level of service. it shapes how our communities see us as a library – we are vitally interested and knowledgeable about current work and employment issues in today’s world
I know it is an information saturated world but here we have a grassroots publication built on trust, people are confident in the contents as it has proven itself over the last 8 years and it is issued from the University of Toronto (a great brand) But more intangible than all of this is the fact that these divergent groups are reading the same publication – academics, students who move from being academics to practitioners, government, and anyone interested in the field. Both the content and the readership exist in an international context.
divergent groups are reading the same publication -- both the content and the readership exist in an international context Book of the Week PWR highlights a new library acqusition each week and the library has a
recent books blog http://cirhrlibrary.wordpress.com/
The content – which provides links to reports, analysis, government documents, legal cases, collective bargaining information -- can be from companies, unions, universities in partnership with companies, academics, government bodies & agencies, non-governmental organizations, and courts. This work has brought the library into contact with bloggers – some of the best blogging is in law and employment law from professors & practitioners three I know who teach at the University of Toronto or York. It is not acompetitive market as we refer to each others postings. Bloggers trouble in paradise
