New Education resources

Hannah Rose, Academic Librarian for Education, tells me that the British Education Index has just moved to the EBSCO platform.  In addition, we also now have access to three other resources as part of our subscription:

  • Child Development & Adolescent Studies
  • Education Abstracts
  • Educational Administration Abstracts

The new resources can be found in NELSON, or directly through the A-Z list of databases.

Researchers needing help with finding resources in Education subjects can contact Hannah directly; for other specialist subjects please contact your School’s Academic Librarian.
