- New ERIC interface: We've changed from the FirstSearch interface that we had used for years and years to a new interface provided by EBSCO. It's the same ERIC you've always used, just in a shiny new package. (We recommend that everyone use the EBSCO version -- we think it's the best one -- but if you like having choices, your options are here.)
- New EBSCO education products: We are also offering two great Education-specific full-text databases from EBSCO -- the Professional Development Collection and Education Research Complete. (HINT: To search all the EBSCO education databases in one easy search, click on the blue tab that says "Choose Databases" at the top of the EBSCO search screen, and choose the ones you'd like to use.)
- New Education Subject Page: We've reorganized the subject page for Education resources -- http://www.potsdam.edu/library/home/Subjects/Education.php -- so that all the best resources for education projects are in one place. You'll find links for searching for children's books, links to some of our online encyclopedias, links to New York State Curriculum Standards, and much more.

Doing education research?
We know that a lot of our students use the libraries looking for information about education, and we're always trying to make sure we have the best possible resources to help you. So, in that spirit, we've made some changes you'll want to know about for this year!
