ERIC Clearinghouse on Rural Education and Small Schools, Las Cruces, NM.
Written in Spanish, this booklet describes the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) system, who uses ERIC and why, and how to use ERIC. Brief descriptions of the 16 clearinghouses and the services of the ERIC Processing and Reference Facility, ERIC Document Reproduction Service, Oryx Press, and the U. S. Government Printing Office are provided, along with their full addresses and telephone numbers. Following a discussion of the three basic reference tools which are used to locate information in the ERIC data base--Resources in Education (RIE), Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE), and the Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors--are step-by-step examples of a manual search and a computer search. How to obtain copies of documents and articles cited in RIE and CIJE, and how to submit materials to the ERIC data base are discussed. A copy of the Reproduction Release form, which grants ERIC permission to reproduce and disseminate the document, is included. Other print and micrographic products to facilitate user awareness of and access to information in the ERIC data base are grouped according to the organization from which they are available and briefly described. Order forms for each organization conclude the booklet. (NQA)
