WEIGEL ADDS NEW PERIODICALS 

We have some new additions to the Weigel periodical family!

This fall, Weigel Library has received six new hard copy periodical subscriptions. These titles were requests from students and faculty and one was an alumnus donation. Please stop by and take a look at these beautiful sources of inspiration and new ideas.

HERD: Health Environments Research and Design Journal-“There are no other magazines that address the design of health-care facilities from this particular point of view: evidence-based design. For… students to design healing environments based on scientific research, this magazine is crucial to keep up with what’s happening. Evidence-based design is now the way in which the health-care design profession is going.” -Paul Weigel Library of Architecture, Planning & Design patron.

Innovation-Innovation is the quarterly design journal published by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA). Each issue features sections highlighting aspects of commercial and industrial products, communication tools, computer equipment, design strategy, environments, interactive product experiences, leisure and recreation products, medical and scientific products, packaging and graphics, research, service design, and a student design.

MARK-“Each issue is practically a book in itself (the current issue is 224 pages!). Images are great and overall an excellent resource for information on new and exciting projects and reflections on memorable/influential/significant works of the past.” —K-State College of Architecture, Planning & Design alumnus.

The Plan: Architecture & Technologies in Detail-Published in Italy, this beautiful, oversized magazine covers a wide spectrum of architectural design fields with comprehensive detail. Gorgeous, full color imagery depicts the vision and well-written articles in both English and Italian will have you looking forward to the next issue.

‘scape-“‘scape is the new international magazine for landscape architecture and urbanism. It offers a journalistic, critical and professional view of the design of landscapes and townscapes. ‘scape informs, raises opinions and inspires. Richly illustrated and attractively laid out, the magazine contains news, features, interviews, portraits, design criticism, essays, book reviews and commentaries.” Quote fromhttp://www.scapemagazine.com/about.html “This magazine is truly innovative and gives readers an inside look at prominent figures in Landscape Architecture, City Planning and Urban Design.” — Landscape Architecture student at K-State College of Architecture, Planning & Design.

Texas Architect-“Texas Architect informs a national readership about new work by members of the Texas Society of Architects and other practitioners with ties to Texas. Autonomously published by the Texas Society of Architects, each edition features recently completed projects and other editorial content largely written by AIA members in Texas. That collective participation was the basis of Texas Architect’s recognition by the national AIA with a 2010 Institute Honor for Collaborative Achievement.” Quote from https://texasarchitects.org/v/about-texas-architect/This title is also available online through K-State Libraries e-journals.

2012 HUMANITIES CONFERENCE IN MONTREAL 

The 10th International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, taking place June 14-17, 2012 at the Centre Mont-Royal in Montreal, is pleased to announce the call for papers for the conference. The conference and its companion journal provide vibrant, intellectually stimulating spaces for scholars from all geographic and disciplinary areas to learn, converse, and create. The aim is to generate new knowledge about the nature of the humanities, building strongly on the past traditions of the humanities while setting a renewed agenda for the future.

Please refer to the call for papers for proposal submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of the Humanities.

We are pleased to be holding the 2012 Humanities Conference in Montreal, home to over a dozen colleges and universities.

All together, there are 51 National Historic Sites of Canada in Montreal, more than any other city in Canada. In 2006 Montreal was named a UNESCO City of Design, only one of three design capitals of the world.
