    Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 12 February 2019

    Brill and the International Simone de Beauvoir Society are pleased to announce the journal Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) will be published with Brill as of 2019.

    Founded in 1983 and publishing its 30th volume in 2019, SdBS is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship relevant to the writings, thinking, and legacy of Simone de Beauvoir. It also features articles that advance contemporary discussions of central themes in her oeuvre such as gender, race, and sexuality. Simone de Beauvoir Studies is one of only a few academic journals published today dedicated to the work and thought of a female philosopher. The journal is housed in the Humanities & Arts department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute under the direction of Jennifer McWeeny.

    Professor Tove Pettersen (University of Oslo), President of the International Simone de Beauvoir Society, says: “We are truly delighted that our journal is to be published by Brill, a venerated leader in academic publishing. Since 1983, the journal has been instrumental as the Society has endeavored to advance outstanding scholarship related to the work of Simone de Beauvoir – one of the twentieth century’s great philosophers, authors and public intellectuals. Our new affiliation with Brill will augment our capacity to foster international and interdisciplinary exchange relevant to Beauvoir scholars, contribute to dialogue and research within the humanities, social sciences and gender studies, as well as advocate the enduring importance and relevance of Simone de Beauvoir’s body of work within context of contemporary life and political debate.”

    Publication of the 30th volume will commence in June 2019 and all previous volumes of the journal will also be placed on the Brill website at that time. For more information on the journal visit or contact the Acquisitions Editor Jennifer Pavelko via Here you will find Calls for Papers for thematic issues on “The New Face of Simone de Beauvoir Studies” (Vol. 30, no. 1) and “Beauvoir in Conversation” (Vol. 30, no 2), both to appear in 2019.

    Duluth, Ga., February 11, 2019: Equinox is pleased to announce the successful migration of Clearfield County Public Library, Curwensville Public Library, Joseph and Elizabeth Shaw Public Library, and the DuBois Public Library to Evergreen within the Pennsylvania Integrated Library System (PaILS) SPARK Consortium.

    This move includes a total of 16,628 patron records and 129,513 bibliographic records. Services provided by Equinox as part of the migration included data extraction and deduplication encompassing bibliographic, item, patron, and transaction records. Equinox staff administered software configuration and project management as well as remote and onsite training.

    “Here at SPARK we’re very happy to welcome the libraries in Clearfield County to our consortium,” said Lugene Shelly, SPARK Director of Technology and System Support. “By joining SPARK they will be able to share resources across all four library outlets for the first time, expanding access to services and resources for their patrons. They’ll also be joining neighboring county library systems on SPARK, and helping to expand the Pennsylvania Integrated Library System’s footprint in Pennsylvania. We will encourage the libraries’ staff to become involved with both the SPARK and Evergreen communities, and having worked closely with them during their migration, I’m sure they will be an asset to both.”

    PaILS was founded in June 2011 as a non-profit organization to provide an open source integrated library system. It oversees SPARK, a consortia of Evergreen libraries across Pennsylvania. Equinox and PaILS have been collaborating on the SPARK consortia since 2013.

    “It was great to work with the staff at these four libraries and see them come together onto a shared system,” said Jason Etheridge, Senior Developer at Equinox. “I am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the future.”
