New app for Bridgeman Education images database


University of Leeds staff and students can access the Bridgeman Education's database with over 330,000 images from galleries, museums and private collections with a new app. The app allows you to search, view images and their metadata, and create and save slide shows (once you have created a profile and registered on your computer).

Bridgeman Education is available in the library catalogue. To get the app, visit the app store on your iPhone 4, iTouch, or iPad or via iTunes. (Requires iOS 4.1 or later.) Then come to the Arts and Social Sciences office in the Brotherton Library so that library staff can activate it for you. To make an appointment to see the fine arts and design librarian, email: r.v.roberto@leeds.ac.uk.

Political economy in hard times - free access

Here is a useful resource offering free access to 65 journal articles covering 8 themes of politics and international political economy. Topics covered are:


Causes of the Financial Crisis, Financial Crisis Impact and Management - Regional Focus on the Financial Crisis - Learning from the Financial Crisis - The Financial Crisis as a Crisis of Capitalism - Opportunities Emerging from the Financial Crisis - Globalization Security and Defence in Hard Times Materials are taken from recent issues of academic journal titles published by Routledge.



The Library's subscriptions cover to these journals via the Catalogue is more extensive than offered here, but this represents a good one-stop resource.
