ChildLinks Issue 2

Barnardos. (1994). ChildLinks Issue 2.
There have been several interesting developments in relation to the National Children's Resource Centre since the first issue Of Childlinks. The first anniversary of the Centre was celebrated with the publication of the “Child and Family Directory'. Computerisation of the Information and Library Service is contributing enormously to the efficiency with which queries can be answered and literature searches completed. Work has begun in association with the Department of Health on a project entitled 'A Study of Parenting Programmes in Ireland' which is due to be completed in August 1994. The piloting phase of a evaluation system for nurseries and creches is well underway. The Centre is also represented on the steering committee of a new group entitled "The Children's Rights Alliance - Republic of Ireland' which is working to establish a Children's Rights Unit to promote awareness of the UN Convention on Children's Rights.
