Elementary and Secondary Teachers Use ERIC.
Brown, Dale W.; And Others
The experiences with ERIC which are profiled for three public school systems reflect specific user requirements in different environments. In "Meeting Professional Education Information Needs: A Profile of How the Alexandria, Virginia City Public Schools Use the ERIC System," Dale Brown discusses the types of searches used by administrators and teachers at the city school system level. Patricia Mautino, in "Watch ERIC Grow!" describes three levels of ERIC use in New York State, through the Educational Programs and Studies Information Service (EPSIS), which provides state-wide support, the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) at the county level, and individual user services at the school level. The use of microforms at East Detroit High School is discussed in Lewis Saks' article, "The Little Grey Cells, The Little Black Cards: An Approach to ERIC Microfiche," as well as a recent study done by Pat Gilmore which surveyed the use and knowledge of ERIC by teachers in the East Detroit School system.
