ERIC: Key Database

What is ERIC?

ERIC (Education Resource Information Center) is an online database that contains

more than 1.6 million records and links to  more than 631,000 full-text documents

records for a variety of source types, including journal articles, books, conference papers, curriculum guides, policy papers and more

an education-specific thesaurus containing over 11,700 terms

How do I access ERIC?

You can use three versions of ERIC.  All provide access to the same data, but their interfaces are different.   ERIC (EBSCO) and ERIC (ProQuest) are by subscription. ERIC (U.S. Department of Education) links to the freely available version of ERIC.
