Online data bases useful in education described in this paper resulted from an information resources workshop conducted in Illinois in 1977. There are two major sections in the paper. The first section, Data Bases, contains one-page summaries of thirty-two online data bases of interest to people in education. Data base types include bibliographies, funding information, statistics, government publications and proceedings, and specific subject areas. There is also a list of twenty additional data bases for which summary pages are not included. Information for interpreting data base sheets are provided, including acronym, name of data base, major area(s), subjects covered, size of data base, date established, publications/print journals, update frequency, thesaurus/search aids, types of source documents, forms of retrievable information, document copies available, information contact, and systems/vendors. The topic question "How can the reading ability of adults be improved?" was used in searching twenty other data bases. Samples from this search follow the one-page summaries of each data base, and a reading guide is provided. The second major section is Dissemination Systems, Networks, and Projects. One-page summary sheets are included for eighteen state and national dissemination systems. A list of contact persons at the state or regional offices of the networks are included with these pages.
