New in Journals-Databases & Pocketknowledge
We are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Ethnologue
, a language database containing information on more than 7,000 languages. Ethnologue enables researchers to discover where languages are spoken, the size of language populations, and language relationships, such as dialects. This comprehensive resource is updated regularly so that the information it contains is as current as possible.
We are also pleased to announce new and expanded collections in Pocketknowledge
, the social, digital archive of Teachers College, Columbia University.
- Maxine Greene Archive is also known as the "M.Archive,” the most recent and voluminous addition to the already existing “Maxine Greene Collection” in the digital archive known as “Pocket Knowledge” at Teachers College, Columbia University. All that is uploaded into and identified here as “M.Archive” contains materials that Maxine Greene herself authorized from her personal trove of memorabilia. These multiple and newly added “Pockets” and “Sub-Pockets” thus represent a fascinating compilation of scanned materials from her long, rich, nuanced, and inspiring life. This particular archiving effort was supported by a TC Provost’s Grant awarded to Janet L. Miller, Professor, and Olga Hubard, Associate Professor, both in the Department of Arts & Humanities, and was accomplished too with the considerable assistance of Maya Pindyck and Beth Semaya, doctoral students in English Education during the 2015-16 and 2016-2017 academic years.
For an inside look on this project, be sure to read the College's recent news article about the Maxine Greene Archive.
- New York State School Finance Reform is an initiative of The Gottesman Libraries at Teachers College.

- "Historical Dissertations" contains over 10,000 Teachers College historical dissertations written between 1930 and 1996., with new dissertations also added. You can browse the pocket and see ED's as recent as 2012.
