Bernard Van Leer Foundation, The Hague (Netherlands).
Guidelines are presented for obtaining educational and social science research documents from several information retrieval, clearinghouse, and document delivery services. The guide is international in scope; services are from all parts of the world, and addresses are given for correspondence from within and outside the United States. Contained in profiles for each service are: (1) subject concentration and indexes in which the document collection is contained; (2) necessary ordering information; (3) addresses; and (4) special features of that service. More than 24 services are profiled; discussed in greatest depth are ERIC facilities. ERIC clearinghouses, publishers of indexes and information analysis products, and collections outside North America are presented. Types of computerized retrieval services listed include those offering a "direct approach," subscription services, tape purchase or hire, and online information retrieval. (SW)
