Educational Administration Abstracts Now Available Online

Educational Administration Abstracts, the major index for scholarship in the field of educational leadership, is now available online on the EBSCOhost search platform. The most comprehensive source for published research in educational administration, the database currently contains over 7,800 citations and abstracts for articles from over 150 journals and other periodicals, with approximately 1,200 new records added each year. Topics covered in the database include administrative responsibilities, community development, counseling and guidance programs, curriculum development, educational facilities, equipment, and materials, financial management, in service training, parent-school communications, performance and program evaluation, personnel management and labor relations, school choice, staff development, target programs for high-risk and special-needs students, and vocational education. Links to full-text articles from the Cheng Library's online journal collection are provided where available, along with pointers to journals in our print and microform collection.

The online version of Educational Administration Abstracts has been launched with coverage extending to 1993, but EBSCO plans to add retrospective content back to 1966 while also adding records for books, government reports, and conference papers. More information about Educational Administration Abstracts, including searching tips, a list of searchable fields and field definitions, and keys to browsing the index, is available from EBSCO.
