Portola Inst., Inc., Menlo Park, CA.
Subtitled "Resources for Our Education", this catalog is aimed not only at the professional educator, but at anyone, young or old, who is interested in learning in its broadest sense. Items listed in the catalog include books, toys, structures, furniture, instructional aids, magazines, films, and any other resource which contains data about or will stimulate learning in any one of a number of fields. Each article is described, along with its price and source. Extensive quotes, photographs, and illustrations serve to supplement the description of an item. Among the wide range of products is a geodesic dome, a cardboard carpentry kit, a minicomputer, and books on Yoga and mysticism. It is planned that the catalog will be issued six times a year in order to update the material. (JY)
