Editor's note

There's been much talk of late of the potential for e-learning in
professional education. With the government's plans for 'e-
universities' coming on apace, the potential for studying for
'virtual' academic qualifications will shortly become a reality.
Whatever you think about the progress of e-learning for
professional studies - Sir John Daniel, the Open University's
vice chancellor, maintains that print on paper is the most
effective learning medium - books are likely to remain one of the
best ways to keep abreast of academic theory and practice for
some time. Now, thanks to a collaboration with business
bookstore Blackwell's, you can access 1.5 million professional
publications through TrainingZONE.

Thousands of training and management books at your fingertips!
Buying books is one of the big growth areas of sales of consumer
goods over the Internet, and for good reason - you don't usually
need to check the quality of the item before you buy, a summary
usually tells you as much as you need to know if you're browsing,
and an internet search can yield many more results far quicker
than trawling the shelves of bookshops. Now, thanks to a new
collaboration with Blackwell's Bookshops, the world's biggest
business bookseller, you can search more than 1.5 million books
online on TrainingZONE and HR Zone - 37,000 of which are on
business and management topics. Visit the store now at
