EBSCO Acquires the British Education Index

EBSCO Information Services acquired the article records of the British Education Index (BEI), a database featuring more than 180,000 education journal records from the U.K. Adding BEI records will naturally complement two of EBSCO’s databases: Education Research Complete and Education Resource Information Center, says Mark Herrick, EBSCO senior vice president of business development and strategy.

The BEI, part of the University of Leeds Library, indexes articles that focus on education and education-themed theses. Its stated mission is to “support the professional study of education by facilitating the identification and use of specific reading matter and event-related information,” according to its website.

BEI records contain journal information dating from 1976 that is also accessible via ProQuest Dialog. The BEI is searchable using the British Education Thesaurus (a collection of about 8,000 terms) or by author, subject term, word, or phrase.
