This annotated directory of existing databases, both online and print, is designed to assist in identifying available technology products for use in special education. The first section describes eight commercial software products with a special education focus, such as the "Closing the Gap Resource Directory" and "Software To Go." The second section lists five commercial software products with a regular education focus, such as "Only the Best" and the "Software Preview Guide." The third section lists five databases that contain public domain software and have a special education focus, including "Software for Special Populations" and "Tell'em Ware." The database descriptions in these three sections indicate the name and address of the producing organization, populations targeted by the database, cost for using the database, and access to the database, and include a paragraph-length description. The last section lists five newsletters and journals that contain evaluative reviews of software, such as "The Computing Teacher" and "Special Education Software Review." (JDD)
