ERIC has evolved from a research database into a multi-faceted information system. At the heart of ERIC is the world's largest education database, providing abstracts of more than 850,000 journal articles and documents from a wide range of public and private sources. The system also features a variety of additional products and services designed to put education information into the hands of people who need it. ERIC's goal of reaching diverse audiences, coupled with the rapid advancement of information technologies, has resulted in a larger than ever selection of access points to ERIC, the following of which are discussed in this digest: CD-ROM; online access through commercial services; locally-mounted systems and Internet access; print access; AskERIC; ERIC Digests and other ERIC publications; and ACCESS ERIC. Instructions are provided for acquiring ERIC articles and documents. (Contains 15 references.) (MAS)
