The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC): An Annotated Bibliography of Documents and Journal Articles about ERIC (Covering the Period 1960-1992).
Brandhorst, Ted, Ed.
As producer of one of the earliest, most economical, and frequently searched machine-readable databases, the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) has been frequently studied and has figured heavily in the growth of online searching and in evaluations of the relatively new medium of bibliographic databases on compact disk (CD-ROM). This annotated bibliography represents the results of a comprehensive search for documents and journal articles written about ERIC published from 1960 through 1992. It contains 689 citations (574 referring to items in the ERIC database and 115 to items not in the database), adding 182 new citations to those listed in previous editions. The bibliography is arranged in descending order of accession number, with the most recent material listed first. Document resumes are included for entries in "Resources in Education" one of ERIC's two monthly publications, and journal article resumes are included for entries from the other monthly publication, "Current Index to Journals in Education." Subject, author, and institution indexes are included. An addendum lists references to items not in the ERIC database. ERIC clearinghouses and other network components are listed, and an order form is included for the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. (SLD)
