What is ERIC?

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Center and is a database produced by the US Department of Education that contains thousands of published and unpublished sources (including dissertations and conference proceedings) covering the topic of education and educational research from 1966 to present.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

Please keep in mind, though, that not all items in ERIC are available full-text online. The items with EJ numbers are journal articles that may be available through other library databases. Check the journal title from the Journal Holdings tab on the library homepage to see if we have access to the journal and year the article was published.

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

You may also want to search for other databases that contain information on education and educational research.
