ERIC is an authoritative database of indexed and full-text educational literature and resources. It focuses on topics in education including student assessment, research reporting and surveys, curriculum and teaching, instructional material creation, and program evaluation.
ERIC contains more than 1.5 million records and links to hundreds of thousands of full-text documents dating back to 1966. It includes records for a variety of source types, including journal articles, books, conference papers, curriculum guides, policy papers and more.
The library subscribes to two sources of ERIC. One is through EBSCOhost and uses that interface. The other is through the government. Both include a thesaurus of educational terms that are used in building search strategies.
