Miller, David H.; Beasley, Gary F.
Designed as an individual study guide as well as a teaching reference and guide, this teaching-study unit presents instruction on using educational information retrieval indexes, particularly the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system's: (1) "Research in Education" (RIE), (2) "Current Index to Journals in Education" (CIJE), (3) "Abstracts of Instructional Materials in Vocational and Technical Education" (AIM), and (4) "Abstracts of Research Materials in Vocational and Technical Education" (ARM). The guide contains: (1) a discussion of the ERIC system's information retrieval products and other library retrieval sources, (2) instruction in conducting a manual or computer search of the ERIC system, which consists of defining the problem and outlining the search strategy, and (3) information for locating documents identified through the search. Appended materials include: (1) a glossary of ERIC terminology, (2) sample pages from ERIC access products, (3) several "hands-on" exercises in the use of RIE, CIJE, AIM, ARM, the "ERIC Thesaurus," and the computer search. Transparency masters for the visuals presented in the text are available from the Product Utilization Section of The Center for Vocational and Technical Education. (SB)
