Thanks to funding from the College of Education and feedback from our recent database trials, there are some new databases in GALILEO:Â the Childrenâ€™s Core Collection; the IGI InfoSci Book & Reference Collection; and 3Â Cabellâ€™s Directories of Publishing Opportunities:Â Educational Curriculum & Methods; Educational Psychology & Administration; and Education Technology & Library Science.Â Â Their funding has also added more education e-books to our Ebrary and NetLibrary accounts.
Childrenâ€™s Core Collection (4 simultaneous users allowed)Â is the online version of Childrenâ€™s Catalog, which is â€œa 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 childrenâ€™s librarians and school media specialists.â€
