How To Conduct a Search Through ERIC.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This 24-page booklet is the third component in a set of instructional materials related to the purposes, organization, and uses of ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center). The booklet is designed to instruct the reader in ways of using the comprehensive ERIC indexing system in the search for information or materials relevant to his needs. The reader starts with a specific problem (how to plan a nature center) and, guided by a series of questions and illustrations, progresses through a step-by-step search for documents related to this problem. In the process of completing this search, the reader is introduced to ERIC's three basic research tools (Research in Education, Current Index to Journals in Education, and the ERIC Thesaurus) and six basic steps in conducting an effective and efficient search. Supplementary information is included to anticipate problems which may be encountered when the reader attempts his own searches for educational information. (JES)
