Students, hobbyists, and others just getting started in metalworking have turned to this informative, easy-access reference time and time again. Without getting bogged down in confusing details, it teaches them what they need to know about the most effective techniques for working with gold, platinum, copper, brass, steel, plaster, and more. In fact, it covers most of the same subjects as the professional version, only in a simpler fashion: metals, tools, surfaces, shaping, joining, casting, stones, and mechanisms. And, like the larger edition, it has a spiral spine and attractive color images throughout. Newcomers to the field will especially appreciate the safety tips and the many charts covering melting points, conversion, factors, and other fundamental knowledge.

Viele Christen sind begnadete Seelsorger. Die Gesprache, die sie fuhren, starken die christliche Existenz und tragen wesentlich dazu bei, dass Kirchengemeinden ein soziales Netzwerk sind. In Zukunft wird die Bedeutung ehrenamtlicher Seelsorge weiter zunehmen. Ihre Voraussetzungen, ihre Praxis und ihre Chancen sind bisher allerdings kaum untersucht. Zu Unrecht. Denn ohne eine entsprechende Analyse ist eine nachhaltige Forderung dieser Seelsorgepraxis nur schwer moglich. Diese Studie gibt in systemischer Perspektive einen Uberblick zu den theologischen, historischen, gesellschaftlichen und kirchlichen Voraussetzungen ehrenamtlicher Seelsorge. Theologisch fundiert und an der Praxis orientiert zeigt sie auf, wie ehrenamtliche Seelsorge in ihrer Bedeutung fur Individuum, Kirche und Gesellschaft gefordert und gestaltet werden kann."

Ringe sind beliebt und werden von Frauen wie Männern gerne getragen. Die meisten Schmuckkünstler/innen haben sich deshalb in irgendeiner Form mit Ringen auseinander gesetzt. In diesem Buch zeigt Jinks McGrath die geschichtliche und symbolische Bedeutung von Ringen auf, bevor sie sich den aktuellen Goldschmiedetechniken für Ringformen, Fassungen, Dekorationen oder Oberflächenstrukturen zuwendet. Die Eigenschaften verschiedener Metalle und die geeigneten Techniken wie Löten, Ausglühen, Schmieden oder Giessen werden anhand konkreter Beispiele Schritt für Schritt praktiziert. Dabei konzentriert sich die Autorin auf schlichte Modelle, die nach individuellem Geschmack weiterentwickelt werden können. Inspirationen liefert der Galerieteil im Anhang, der Werke von internationalen Künstler/innen präsentiert. Ausserdem hilft eine Übersichtstabelle bei der Auswahl des passenden Edelsteins.

This helpful book provides practical insight into the work and environment of reference services in the humanities. Librarian?s mental maps of humanities reference materials must include an awareness of the metaphoric, not too precise nature of many patrons’queries. Reference Services in the Humanities discusses the structure of literature in the humanities and how it matches or challenges mental images of the field. Chapters are infused with the issues of language, names, and meaning within a metaphoric genre. The book serves as a guide to humanist?s use of metaphoric language and also as a bibliography of sources. Reference Services in the Humanities contains specific references for finding materials in areas that are not traditional, mainstream arts. This sample of disciplines provides case studies depicting each field?s particular idiosyncrasies. Chapters examine the challenge of referral reference and common problems encountered in searching for answers to patrons’questions. The book contains a theoretical framework for interacting with patrons and addresses options for humanities reference in an electronic age. This book brings together librarians and researchers who provide and manage reference services to a wide array of disciplines within the humanities. Authors come from all types of libraries and represent a broad spectrum of patrons, from the young student curious about the movies to practicing musicians and craftspersons. This diversity provides an informative grounding for practitioners and library school students and faculty who wish to become effective reference librarians in the future. Reference Services in the Humanities is divided into four sections which address research questions and challenges in selected disciplines, descriptions from the field, political issues in the humanities, and theories and ideas for the future. Specific topics explored include access to special collections, censorship, library resources for theater artists, history research, vocabulary control, labeling of minorities, craft information sources, and much more.
