If you know of any new items [put up, please let me know.

Any recent journal articles on Conductive Education ?

I have been doing a little hunt round to see how many journal articles on Conductive Education have been published in the last five years. I did this once before, when I  found five articles of note, see

Some New Additions to the Virtual Library

Here are a few new additions to the virtual library catalogue. Not as many as usual but more will follow!

It is interesting and very good to see that the staff of the Maria Hari Library at the Pető András Főiskola has been uploading some lists of its holdings. Let’s hope there will be more of these to come too.

Maria Hari’s contribution to Conductive Education

I have just seen Andrew’s post about the anniversary of Maria Hari’s death and it set me thinking about her.
She was keen for people to know about and understand Conductive Education and produced  many items on the subject. I compiled a bibliography of her work some time ago now and this is now up in the Depository of the Virtual Library on Conduction’s website and this includes unpublished papers, books, articles and conference presentations   in English, French and Hungarian.
There are other references to her on the Internet which may be of interest too  at
Do have a look and see.
Its important that she be remembered.

New Additions to the Conductive Education Virtual Library Catalogue

The catalogue now has over 600 entries of material on the Internet, some link to the full document and some just to a link requiring payment to get the complete item. It has taken nearly seven years to compile this listing and I am still finding more material.

This new additions list is a mixture of newly published material and older articles just been made available on the web.

New Additions to the Virtual Library, Spring 2016

As the contents of the catalogue increases – it now has 608 items – it is becoming harder to find new material for it, and this list of  new additions  I have found so far this year  is a mixture of old and newly available articles, a book review and web documents in English, Russian, German and Hungarian.

Information, information everywhere

To me, one of the most important parts of being a Librarian has always meant helping people to find the information they want, either from the library they are in or from another source using skills learnt  to search the resources available.

Since the advent of the Internet  and the World Wide Web everything has changed. There is so much information available it is difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Yesterday I was sent this link which reports on an example of the new skills that Librarians have to learn now and how these can be shared.

http://digital.vpr.net/post/greene-navigating-internet#stream/0

The librarian says:

…it’s no longer a question of there not being enough information out there, but of there being too much. “There’s more filtering in the librarian’s job now,….People need help discerning good solid sources from the rest.”

The report goes on to describe a group tutorial of searching for information and sorting out what is appropriate and what is not, lead by a librarian. All involved were very pleased with the results.

I am not sure how much of this sort of help is available to those studying and researching Conductive Education. It is not a subject with much academic interest or publication and most of what is available on-line is not of the best quality.

Meeting users’ needs was an  aspect that I really enjoyed when I was working as a librarian in Conductive Education and my knowledge of the library holdings and methods of searching usually bore the right fruit.

I hope that I can still do this with my knowledge of the subject,  limited physical resources, the virtual library catalogue, and connection to the Internet.

Pointing the way? Presentations at conferences

Over the years some papers at conferences have gradually changed from being written papers traditionally read out, into Powerpoint presentations. The main bullet points of the topic are on slides shown on a screen and these are expanded on verbally by the presenter. This means that there is no real record of what was said except the slides of the presentation (if kept and circulated) and thus details of many accounts of research, practice etc are technically lost.

Whilst looking for material to add to the virtual catalogue,  I have found a number of Powerpoint presentations concerning Conductive Education on the Internet and now there are 17 of these in the catalogue. I do wonder how useful these could be to those who were not there when they were presented and  would welcome your feedback .

Do you think the limited information included is helpful?

Is knowing who talked about what useful?

Is it a good idea to continue adding new ones to the catalogue?

These are the latest ones I have found, all from the CEPEG conference in March 2015.

Items added to the Virtual Library Catalogue, Summer 2015

At last after all my technical problems (thank you for sorting it, Ben) I am able to post a list of new items in the Virtual Library Catalogue.

It is the usual mixture of journal articles, papers, leaflets and also this time, some abstracts and poster presentations from the World Congress of Conductive Education in Munich, 2013.

Enjoy!
