What is ERIC?

ERIC stands for the Educational Resources Information Center and is a database produced by the US Department of Education. It contains thousands of published and unpublished sources (including dissertations and conference proceedings) covering education and educational research from 1966 to present.

To access ERIC from the library homepage, click on "Find a Database," then select "E," then scroll down to "ERIC (at EBSCOhost)" on the list.

Not all items in ERIC are available online in full-text. The items with EJ numbers are journal articles that may be available through other library databases. You may need to search for the journal by title to make sure we have access to the journal and issue with the article.

The library previously subscribed to ERIC in microfiche form, so some items may physically be available on the 3rd Floor of the Library. Items may also be obtained via interlibrary loan.

You can also search other databases that contain information on education and educational research.
