MInd: The Meetings Index
MInd: The Meetings Index is a free listing of conferences, meetings, congresses and academic symposia maintained by InterDok. It can be used to quickly locate future events in science/technology; medical/life sciences; pollution control/ecology and the social sciences/humanities. The social sciences category includes materials on politics, economics, sociology and law, among many other subjects. The majority of the events are located in North America, although there is some more limited coverage of other areas of the world. Each entry has a description of the event, contact details and links to the official website (where available). There is also an archive of past events dating back to approximately 2003.

Espresso Book Machine®, Blackwell's print-on-demand book machine

Blackwell revolutionises reading with print-on-demand book machine

"Frustrating 'out-of-print' and 'out-of-stock' books will become a thing of the past with a new machine that prints books on demand. In the future, any novel, manual, journal or academic title, no matter how old or new can be printed in just under five minutes. On 24 April, Blackwell launched the Espresso Book Machine® (the "EBM") at its London flagship store in Charing Cross, which currently holds more than 400,000 publications. By summer there will be over a million titles available, the equivalent of 23.6 miles worth of shelving or over 50 bookshops rolled into one, in a machine the size of a photocopier."
