Desperately Seeking ERIC. Leaders Sharing--Research Windows
Learning & Leading with Technology, v32 n7 p30-32 Apr 2005
You may or may not be aware that ERIC, the Educational Resources Information Center, had a complete makeover during the last year or so. The old ERIC stood for "Educational Research and Information Clearinghouse," and it was run by a private company that leased its database of information and selected full-text articles to subscribers around the world--usually colleges and universities. But like so many other things educational, NCLB put into motion a plan for ERIC to become part of the U.S. Department of Education (ED), specifically the newly created Institute of Education Sciences (formerly OERI, the Office of Educational Research and Improvement), the research arm of ED. This article provides quick user tips on how to search the ERIC database most effectively.
