new catalogue (3rd edition) published!

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/collect/elt_archive/catalogue

The work for this was done in 2010-11 but it's taken some time to get down to putting it all together - our new catalogue - in three parts! All made possible due to a British Council grant in 2010-11 for which we're very grateful. Plus lots of hard work by Sheila Verrier in the Resources Room on free mornings. Thanks Sheila and the BC!

Donation by Hywel Coleman

In all, we've received the following issues of the IATEFL newsletter from Hywel Coleman, as a result of our appeal for missing issues via IATEFL's e-bulletin:

35-36 (2 issues)

38-39 (2 issues)

45-86 (42 issues).

This fills a big hole in our / IATEFL's own existing collection - thank you very much Hywel!

Donation of project evaluations by Rosalyn Hurst

Many thanks to Rosalyn Hurst, who drove up last Friday from Sussex with some valuable items for the Archive including project evaluation reports and other hard-to-obtain items. There will be some very useful additions to our archive of UK-funded project reports.

IATEFL newsletters recovered

The Charles Forbes collection (as yet uncatalogued) has revealed IATEFL newsletters 1-40, except for 32. And Hywel Coleman has just sent us issues 55-64 from Indonesia. So we're well on the way to being able to reconstruct the early history of IATEFL from sources in the ELT Archive!
