ERIC ... and the New York RCU; Guidelines to the Use of the Educational Resources Information Center Service in New York State.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational Education Research.
The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) is a nationwide system which acquires and stores educational information and makes this information readily available to all educators. The ERIC system contains over 40,000 education documents. As the New York ERIC liaison, the New York State Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) has actively incorporated the ERIC system into its service-oriented functions. To establish a network for the effective dissemination of ERIC resource materials the RCU enlisted the cooperation of 32 institutions within the State, each having an ERIC microfiche collection, microfiche readers, and a subscription to "Research in Education" (RIE). The establishment of this network has led to three phases of operation: (1) the input phase--documents received by RCU are evaluated and sent to Central ERIC for possible inclusion in the ERIC system, (2) the output phase--provides availability of information to local educators in New York, and (3) the utilization phase. It is hoped that unanswerable questions will lead to research projects in needed areas. Putting Research into Educational Practice (PREP) is a new and unique research and report service which focuses on current educational problems which are studied by qualified researchers; the results of this research are prepared as PREP documents. PREP documents available through ERIC are listed. (NH)
