We should like to inform you today about recent progress in access
to mathematics education resources at the IDM, the research
institute for mathematics education in Germany, on the Internet.

In fact, we have just achieved a long desired and prepared
innovation: the database for our international collection of materials
in mathematics education is now accessible via Internet!
You can now search in this database with its more than 15.000
items of 'grey' and non-book-materials and - with certain
restrictions - even place orders for copies.

You will find the database either via the 'Bibliothek und
Dokumentation' page of the IDM-web-page:

There you will get general information on the facilities in the library
and the documentation department of the IDM; by clicking
'DATENBANK', you will arrive on the web-page of the database with
its explanations, instructions, further links, and the modi for search
and order.

Or you can also get direct access to the database by

The database is working with the ISIS database system developed
by UNESCO. The Internet installation was realized by the German
ISIS group at the Hochschule fuer Bibliothekswesen, Stuttgart.

We take occasion to inform you about the other resources at the
IDM accessible via Internet:

- on the same web-page of the IDM library and documentation, you
will find - by clicking 'Zeitschriften' in the 'Bibliothek' section - the
list of the journals in mathematics education to which our library is

- by clicking there 'Zeitschriften im Austausch' - in the
'Dokumentation' section -, you will find the list of the journals which
we receive in the documentation department, on an exchange

- the list of the various publication series of the IDM can be reached
by clicking 'Publikationen' on the general IDM web-page:

- The international library in mathematics education (which is
complementary to the documentation collection of non-book-
materials) constitutes a part of the Bielefeld University Library and
can, therefore, be searched via the OPAC catalogue of the
University Library on the Internet, too:

or the English version:

By introducing the location identifying letters QC for the IDM library
and the truncation dollar sign - 'QC$' - in the special search form: in
the entry 'Classification/location:', you will have access to the
stocks of this specialized library.

We are confident that these extended information services will
prove useful for your work in mathematics education and
mathematics teaching.

Yours sincerely
