Congratulations to Dr. Kevin A. Aho, our 23rd honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored or edited by FGCU faculty and staff. Dr. Aho’s book Existentialism: An Introduction will be featured on the Library website during the month of March and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.
Dr. Aho is a Professor in the Department of Communication and Philosophy, where he teaches 19th and 20th Century European Philosophy, Heidegger, Existentialism and Phenomenology. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of South Florida and has authored three books, one edited work, and numerous articles and book chapters. Dr. Aho’s other books are available for checkout at the FGCU Library: Heidegger’s Neglect of the Body, Body Matters: A Phenomenology of Sickness, Disease, and Illness, and Dostoevsky, Notes from the Underground.
Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected and placed on display with an accompanying poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area. The author and book are also featured on the Library’s website, news blog, and Facebook page. FGCU faculty and staff are encouraged to notify the relevant subject specialist if they publish a book.
The library has added access to the Global Industry Reports collection in IBISWorld. In addition to the hundreds of US Industry Reports already available, now there are reports for 75 global industries. Each report consists of 30 to 40 pages of key statistics, analysis and forecasts on market characteristics, operating conditions, current and historical performance, major industry participants and more.
International Financial Statistics (IFS), a journal that we have been subscribing to in print for many years, is now available online. It is now an open access journal on the IMF eLibrary – Data page on the IMF.org website. Once in the eLibrary, you will also find free access to Balance of Payments Statistics, Direction of Trade Statistics, Government Finance Statistics, and Trade and Investment. There are numerous years of historical data as well. The record for the IFS eJournal is in the library catalog, so you can access it through the library link Journals by Title > eJournal Portal or simply by going to IMF eLibrary – Data.
If you have any questions, please contact the reference desk at 239-590-7630.
