NERIS (National Educational Resources Information Service) is a database service that uses a computer at the Open University to provide curriculum information and learning materials to educational users throughout the United Kingdom. Two handbooks on the NERIS system are included in this document. "NERIS: An Introduction" provides an overview of the system, including information on the kinds of materials in the database, hardware requirements, accessing the system, and future levels of development, including enhancements that will enable users to conduct more specific searches. Appendixes provide a list of NERIS publications (including an information disk, tutorial software, and a user handbook) and a glossary. "NERIS Videotex Search Guide" provides an extended introduction to the system and illustrated guidelines for conducting both basic and extended searches, saving and downloading records, interacting with the system, disconnecting from the database, and using saved NERIS records.
