1996 Science Teachers Association of Texas (STAT) Convention
Here is somthing that ALL OF YOU TEACHERS will want to check
out. I believe it is
possibly the most important thing I have found on the Internet. It is a MASSIVE, and I do
mean, massive electronic database for publications since 1988.
The Carl Organization
in Denver operates this database, and it consists of more than 17,000 journals. EACH DAY
they add more than 5,000 papers to the database! You can go to this either through
the Internet by clicking the telnet. Be sure to configure your browser to simply "telnet://database.carl.org"
and then follow the instructions. It is free to VIEW the papers you get from your
menu choice. I usually simply copy and paste them to my Notepad and then go to the
library and check the ones I am interested in reading. Of course, if you have
lot's of $$$, you can actually have Carl FAX any of the millions of articles available.
Just click below which citation format you desire.
or by telneting to : carl.database.org
Now here is a very
inexpensive way to have CARL work for YOU!
Simply for only US $25.00
per year you can subscribe to
the UncoverReveal . This
allows you to name 25 key words and approximately
50 journals, from which CARL will extract information and email it to you weekly.
email box will become quite full, but simply make another mailbox in which to store the incoming
data, then download the data to
your ENDNOTE file where you can build your own database. I suggest ENDNOTE since this
is such an important bibliographic resource for standardizing the formatting of references.
Remember, when you do this, you will not ever have to write the article again.
