Dear subscribers to Ed-Lib

Just a note to let you know a couple of the Cunningham Library's
databases have been updated:

Education Research Theses (ERT)
http://www.acer.edu.au/library/catalogues/theses.html
109 new records for theses. If you didn't have a look at ERT last month,
we've recently added the following new features.
- A Quick Search.
- A Latest Additions page - sign up for alerts when new theses are
added.
- A Theses by University page - an easy way to check whether we have the
latest theses from your institution.
- An about page - info on submitting, obtaining, and digitizing theses,
and theses links.
- Search results can now be sorted by year, author or title.
- Improved date searching.
- New access points on the theses entry page


EdResearch Online
http://cunningham.acer.edu.au/dbtw-wpd/sample/edresearch.htm
206 new records for Australian journal articles - there are now 10,857
records in the database that can be purchased online for $22.00 and are
dispatched to your email account. Documents available via EdREsearch
Online are also available to subscribers to Informit's A+Education, via
download from that database. Records in EdResearch Online are also now
searchable via EdNA Online's advanaced search page at
http://www.edna.edu.au/edna/search?SearchMode=Advancemode - tick the
ACER EdResearch Online box to see.


Database of Research on International Education
http://aei.dest.gov.au/AEI/PublicationsAndResearch/ResearchDatabase/
58 new records on international education - there are now over 5550
records in DRIE, on all aspects of international/export/transnational
education and international students. There is no charge to search the
Database of Research on International Education. ACER produces this
database under contract for Australian Education International at DEST,
who make it freely available to search on their website for anybody
interested.


In all, 838 new records were created for the Australian Education Index
for April, 437 of them for online documents. These records have been
dispatched to vendors for uploading into the various versions of the
AEI.


Regards,

Stuart
