SFU Library has recently upgraded to the new Education Source database from EBSCO: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/12294
This new “super-database” was developed from a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO Publishing (including Education Research Complete ) and H.W. Wilson (including Education Full Text ). In addition, Education Source covers hundreds of unique resources that were not previously available elsewhere.
Please note that the following individual databases (now merged in to Education Source ) will no longer be available after January 31, 2012:
- Education Research Complete: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/11853
- Education Full Text: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/5857
- Education Full Text and Retrospective Index (combined search of the current and retro database): http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/11218
Here is some more information about Education Source from the publisher’s website:
