Electronic Resources in Education: An Annotated Guide to Resources in Primary and Secondary Education.
Freda, Kristin, Comp.
This resource guide was compiled as an aid to education libraries (i.e., libraries that support teacher training and education). It is intended as a tool for teachers, administrators, professors, students of education, and librarians. The focus of the listing, which covers the most important and useful electronic resources currently available in the field, is on elementary and secondary education, including special education, bilingual education, child development, and exceptional child education; resources in the areas of child abuse, mental health, and sociology are also included. A total of 35 resources are divided into 6 major categories: education specific sources, interdisciplinary sources, directory sources, sources of foreign materials, sources of assessment, and participatory sources. Information on the provider, type of database, file size, timespan covered, update frequency, target audience, database content, sources of information, availability, and print counterpart is presented for each resource. Internet resources and education journals online are also listed, and a directory of 29 providers and 13 vendors is included. A list of 8 sources used to compile the guide and 13 sources for further reading and assessment completes the document. (ALF)
