New resource: Campbell Collaboration

Access to the Campbell Collaboration site has been enabled in Library OneSearch. The resource is free to access, so access is unrestricted on-campus and off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

The Campbell Collaboration is an international research network that produces and disseminates systematic review on the effects of interventions in the social and behavioural sciences. It produces reviews in the areas of Crime and Justice, Education, International Development, and Social Welfare. Coverage is international, but research tends to be more focused on first world countries. The Campbell Library part of the site can be searched to find full text systematic review articles, policy papers, and research methods papers, which can be downloaded for free as a zip file.

New resource: DCP (Development Control Practice) Online

Access to the online version of the DCP (Development Control Practice) service has been enabled in the Find Databases section of Library OneSearch. Authentication is direct on-campus, and by university username and password from off-campus. As off-campus authentication relies on secure eZproxy routing, off-campus access is only possible through the link provided in LOS. The resource is described as follows:

Development Control Practice (DCP) provides a detailed guide to all aspects of the planning process, exploring the different factors involved in seeking and making decision on planning applications. It is consulted by lawyers, developers and planning consultants who need to understand how councils make planning application decisions, and in turn provides local authorities with a guide to legislation and precedent.
