Library Thursday: In the journals
As an information service, we also monitor the the literature related to Down syndrome from various sources internationally, to help us to answer your inquiries. Journal articles tend to be more up-to-date (because the publishing time is shorter than for most books), and more narrowly focused, so they are a useful addition to other resources.
An annotated list of recent journal articles is published regularly in our quarterly members' journal, Voice. The 'In the journals' pages up to the most recent issue are now available online here. Members can contact the library to arrange access to journal articles.
One of our favourite magazines Down Syndrome News, published by the National Down Syndrome Congress (a US organisation) is now available online, from the June 2011 (Vol 34 #3) issue. It always includes articles from both families and from well-known professionals, aimed at a family readership. It is one of the journals Down Syndrome NSW subscribes to, so print copies are in our collection.
