Call it a gift by Valerie Hobbs( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeronimo Smith, seventy-seven, is having a particularly bad day, and he needs the poems of William Butler Yeats to get him through it. But the book has just been checked out of the Santa Barbara Public Library. When he accosts the widow who has the book, he meets the woman who will become the love of his life. They're an unlikely pair - Jeronimo a retired janitor, Emily cultured and wealthy - and both are coping with troublesome adult children and the indignities of aging. Jeronimo courts Emily by mowing her lawn, and when he impetuously invites her to join him on a road trip to Yellowstone, she stuns herself by agreeing." "Their elopement is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and the setting for a bitter-sweet love story about the poignant intensity of old age. The two must find a way to balance family responsibilities against their own needs, and the impulse to stay close to what is wild in themselves despite pressures to age "sensibly.""--Jacket
The book of informatics by John G Gammack( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information disciplines are changing from their historical grounding in computing, management information systems and library sciences towards a mainstream assimilation within other disciplines including accounting, marketing, law, the physical sciences and media studies (to name a few). In light of this, new disciplines such as health informatics, art informatics, and bioinformatics, along with specialised subareas such as knowledge management are emerging. These and many other applications of informatics in traditional disciplines are becoming more important as IT/IS becomes fully mainstreamed. This book is also a response to developments in IT/IS curricula in Australia and internationally. All universities offer an Information Systems programme and IS, already normal both in business schools and in IT schools, is widely repositioning as servicing applied informatics fields. A number of emerging courses in the informatics and Knowledge Management area could potentially adopt a book such as this (these numbers are predicted to rise). Universities including Griffith, Murdoch, Monash, Sydney, Canberra, Flinders, NTU, CQU, UWA, Latrobe, Ballarat and the University of Wollongong all now conduct bachelors and/or masters courses in Informatics, or full degrees, particularly in Business Informatics and Health Informatics but also in Arts and Science subjects. Other universities have created separate faculties for Informatics subjects for example CQU has a faculty of Informatics and Communication, and Wollongong has a faculty of Informatics, and these host a range of the cognate subjects in informatics such as information systems and computing science
