A Basic Guide and Workbook for Using SilverPlatter's ERIC on CD-ROM.
Kuntz, Robert A.
Opening with an introduction to the ERIC database, this guide provides a description of the organization and content of the SilverPlatter version of ERIC on CD-ROM. Citing examples of its uses, the guide explains the "Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors," and provides a diagram of the computer keyboard used for searching ERIC using SilverPlatter. The "Getting Started" and "Searching in ERIC" sections lead the guide's user step by step through the search process, displaying depictions of the computer screen at several stages in the process, demonstrating useful features of the SilverPlatter software (e.g., the purposes of the function keys), and detailing the searcher's options at each stage. A short test search is included for the user, followed by an example of how the search might be completed. The step-by-step example can be used for comparison with the user's own search at each step.
