A Tutorial on Using ERIC On Disc. Educational Resources Information Center CD-ROM Database.
Piette, Mary I.; Smith, Nathan M.
This manual introduces the novice searcher to ERIC on Disc and discusses how to prepare for a search by creating a search statement; how to locate ERIC terms using the Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors; and how to modify and limit the search using boolean logic. A computer keyboard illustration accompanies descriptions of the functions of the keyboard, and a step-by-step search using ERIC descriptors--i.e., subject headings--is presented. Sample screens are provided to illustrate this process. The manual concludes with an overview of other search methods and additional search options (e.g., word/phrase index, author name, title, journal, publication year), and a sample document record is provided.
