The Educational Information System for Ontario. A Guide for Using.
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
This general user guide to the Educational Information System for Ontario (EISO) deals with the simple logistics of acquiring material from the system. Since EISO was developed as a way for Ontario citizens to use the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) data base in the United States, a preliminary description of ERIC is provided. Questions answered by the guide include who uses EISO, how to ask a computer question, who/what is a search analyst, how to make a search request, what kind of answer will be given, how long it takes, and how much it costs. A brief explanation of the way the computer links information using Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) is also provided, as well as a sample request form and computer printout, information for ordering microfiche, and a glossary of terms.
