Got the Education Beat? Use ERIC! A Journalist's Handbook about the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC).
This brief guide provides journalists with information on the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). It describes what is in ERIC, why journalists writing education news should use ERIC, when ERIC is most useful, and how journalists can obtain access to ERIC. It explains how to search the ERIC database, manually or on compact disks (CD-ROM), and provides examples of manual and computer searches. It discusses how to obtain copies of journal articles in the "Current Index to Journals in Education" and documents in "Resources in Education." The guide lists addresses, phone numbers, and contact persons for ACCESS ERIC and the 16 ERIC clearinghouses, and provides bibliographic information and annotations for six other guides to ERIC. (SV)
