ERIC Directory of Education-Related Information Centers, 1996.
Heeg, Michael, Ed.; Boston, Carol, Ed.
The "ERIC Directory of Education-Related Information Centers" is a guide to 450 organizations that provide information relevant to education or that focus on topics and disciplines closely related to education, such as educational administration, parent participation, and nontraditional education. The directory includes both federally and privately funded education-related organizations that provide services and products such as: reference and referral; online searches; publications; information dissemination; technical assistance; outreach; information syntheses; and audiovisual materials. It is designed to help researchers, policymakers, librarians, teachers, federal agency staff, and students who need convenient, up-to-date access to resources on information centers in education and related fields. Each entry includes, when possible, addresses and phone and fax numbers; the organization's director; a brief description of purpose; audiences; services; hours of operation; and types of publications. Also included in this edition are several new fields such as URL (Uniform Resource Locators for World Wide Web sites), gopher site addresses, and TDD (telecommunication devices for the deaf) numbers. The directory is based on a continuously updated online database file directing users to information sources within the ERIC System as well as outside its network of components. This information is available electronically via the Internet. The printed form of the directory is published approximately every two years. Entries are arranged alphabetically by organization name. Three indexes are provided: master organization name, subject, and geographic location. (AEF)
