Dear subscribers to Ed-Lib

Just a note to let you know the Cunningham Library's databases have been
updated for April. This email hasn't been sent out for a few months, but
the indexing has been ongoing, so free to browse previous months entries
as well as April's.

Firstly, ACER's website has also undergone a recent refresh. The
Cunningham Library pages has been redeveloped and a new feature is "Hot
Topics in Australian Education" at
http://cunningham.acer.edu.au/dbtw-wpd/textbase/hottopics.html. Hot
Topics, and a variety of other dynamically updating content links are
under the heading "Latest news" on the right hand side at
http://www.acer.edu.au/library.

The Australasian Education Directory was released earlier in the year
and can be purchased online at:
