The Library Guide

Welcome

Welcome to the fully searchable Members' Library, a particularly valuable new feature developed especially for the PIELink. The search bars below are the key to exploring all the resources to be found in the library. Here you will find published papers, training videos, interviews, discussions and podcasts, even whole chapters from some books. (Most items also have our suggested links to other related topics, to speed up browsing.)

For brief advice and guidance on how to use the Library, watch the "The very very short introduction", which introduces the library and its features, and how to get the best out of using them. For more detailed advice and guidance on how to use the search features, should you need it, simply click on the tabs across this page.

Using 'search'

In the Library, you can perform a 'simple' search, using any word, phrase or name. If you already know what item you are looking for, this is often the quickest way.

Alternatively, when you want to explore a particular topic more broadly, keywords have been assigned to each library item, chosen for their relevance to PIEs (and most with a brief definition or other comment). With these you can now perform an 'advanced' search, to filter the whole library using any one, or any combinations of terms.

Try, for example, 'street outreach' plus 'young people'; or 'humanistic/positive psychology' plus 'practice examples'; or 'roll out of PIEs' plus 'organisational culture' plus 'action learning sets'. (If that throws up nothing, then broaden your search - and/or send us in something you think suitable?)

Mixing keywords

It was our original intention to have separate menus for member, practice and research keywords, so that each list was a more manageable size. But it rapidly became clear that this distinction was not workable – all interests overlap - and not achievable without a great deal of overlap and outright duplication.

Instead, therefore, all keywords in one large menu are available, both for the members’ profiles, and for the library of research, policy and other papers. This has the disadvantage that some terms that might have been separated – 'nurse' and 'nursing', 'social work' and 'social worker', 'broker' and 'brokerage' – appear now only in one aspect of their use – usually in terms of the worker or role, rather than the activity.

However, in the library search, a simple search - using the word 'nursing', for example - will still find that term, provided it is used in the title of the paper, or of the journal in which it appeared. You can also search by the name of the author.

We suspect this may be the most achievable solution to the issue of comprehensiveness versus ease of use. But it is an evolving practice, and a discussion that we can have, here. (add here a link to the ‘Vocabulary’ section, in ‘Future Developments’).

Contribute

It is always open to PIELink members to suggest a new item to appear in the Library – though the Editor’s decision is final (add a hyper link here to ‘Editorial policy’, in ‘Futures Developments’). Send any suggestions (preferably with suitable keywords and links) to editor@pielink.net.

Based on feedback from members, we will be reviewing the range and operation of these keywords on a quarterly basis. To suggest new keywords, and/or to take part in the discussion, see the ‘Vocabulary’ section, in ‘Future Developments’. (Add here a link)

You will also find there a more extended video explaining the way we have gone about this so far; and outlining some of the dilemmas, and the creative opportunities, in developing a single vocabulary for this work.
