A new book celebrates some of the world's most beautiful libraries, with many of its entries in Europe.
The Admont Abbey library has been one of the greatest sources of stored cultural energy for almost a millennium. It is the largest monastic library in the world, and it could also be the grandest.

Kia ora Constituents, 

 

Thank you all so much for the chance at the Constituent Organisation Forum to chat about the role of early career researchers in your organizations. Several of you came up during the meeting and mentioned groups within your organizations that cater to early career researchers. I would like to ask you all to email me the name and contact details of any such group. My email is William.godsoe@lincoln.ac.nz . It would really help us to start opening communication among all our groups.

 

The survey for early career researchers that I mentioned can be found at:

 

https://royalsociety.org.nz/early-career-researcher-forum/ecr-news-and-events/survey-for-early-career-researchers/

 

and should you be interested in running a mentoring event at a conference associated with your organization please email

 

Amy Osborne amy.osborne@canterbury.ac.nz .

Hi Garry

 

Not really archaeology but…

 

The not so nice adventurers who travelled the Pacific in the nineteenth century. 94 year old John Dunmore, is a much published author on Pacific exploration, and has had his work recognised by both the French and New Zealand governments. His latest book, Scoundrels and Eccentrics of the Pacific details the rogues who once made the Pacific their playground in the nineteenth century, as well as some of the victims who fell prey to the unscrupulous traders.

Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have. 

Relevant job advertisements are welcome - there is no charge.
