Shalom all,

I would like to bring to your attention the availability of two free 
databases of educational materials, some of them pertaining to Jewish Studies.

  1.  JSTOR announced that it is making journal content published 
prior to 1923 in the United States and prior to 1870 elsewhere freely 
available to anyone, anywhere in the world.  This "Early Journal 
Content" covers nearly 500,000 articles from more than 200 journals 
in many disciplines. See announcement:

2.      Project MAOR, the Israeli counterpart of MERLOT 
<>  was established by the 
Israeli Internet Association,
         the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Inter-University 
Computation Center. It is "a national repository of information 
(meta-data) on online
         learning objects. Every day, educational and academic 
institutions - universities, colleges, schools and other 
organizations - generate new content
         to support education, teaching and learning, research and 
evaluation." Project MAOR offers advanced search options, and 
materials are available in
         different disciplines, including Jewish Studies 
<> .

Best wishes,
