Update on new online service

Last week I posted about the new online service


from Special Needs Jungle for obtaining copies of journal articles not yet free on the Internet.


I applied for an article and received a very nice email back  stating that my request had been forwarded to the publisher and I should hear in about six days or so.

Today I checked my email and found I had been sent a reply last night. The article was now available for me via the Special needs Jungle website where I was to follow the link given.

I did this and found the report by Ester Cotton on a study visit to the Institute for Movement Therapy and School for Conductors, published in 1965, was now available to me in a pdf format. Terrific service from an organisation staffed by volunteers!

I was also told :

Please do pass on this service to your colleagues and friends and feel free to share the research using this link:  http://bit.ly/snjPI1

All items requested in this way will be available to those who access the Special Needs Jungle website. This is the first,  and I am sure others will follow.  In fact, I have several I will ask for myself and I will check the list regularly to see what is on it relevant to Conductive Education.

Please remember that not every request may be granted, but do try it out.

    What a wonderful article to chose for you t o use to test out this new information-retrieval, and how nice it is to see this classic moment in the story of trying to understand Conductive Education now at last publicly available.

    And what a sardonic sense of humour you display!

    Thanks for helping us with this small step for scholarship, and here’s hoping that this historical document is read for what it is.
