New Databases

Thanks to funding from the College of Education and feedback from our recent database trials, there are some new databases in GALILEO:  the Children’s Core Collection; the IGI InfoSci Book & Reference Collection; and 3 Cabell’s Directories of Publishing Opportunities:  Educational Curriculum & Methods; Educational Psychology & Administration; and Education Technology & Library Science.  Their funding has also added more education e-books to our Ebrary and NetLibrary accounts.
Children’s Core Collection (4 simultaneous users allowed) is the online version of Children’s Catalog, which is “a selective annotated list of fiction and nonfiction books and magazines for children from preschool through sixth grade, along with review sources and other professional aids for children’s librarians and school media specialists.”
IGI offers mainly information technology e-books, in full text with perpetual access.  The IGI books currently included in the database, which are also listed individually in the GIL library catalog, are:
Encyclopedia of Data Warehousing and Mining
Encyclopedia of Multimedia Technology and Networking
Handbook of Research on New Media Literacy at the K-12 Level: Issues and Challenges
Online and Distance Learning: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications
Student Plagiarism in an Online World: Problems and Solutions
