The ERIC Index is a major resource for research in all areas of education. ERIC contains approximately 1,000,000 references and abstracts; it annually indexes articles from over 800 journals as well as 13,000 documents (conference papers, research reports, state, federal, and local education documents, selected books, etc.). The index is produced by the US Department of Education. Of the approximately 500,000 ERIC documents available on fiche at Gutman Library, about 100,000 are also available online from ERIC.
Please Note: As of August 2005, ERIC is once again updating its database on a monthly basis. Currently, it is not clear how ERIC will handle the two-year gap in its database content. Please consult a member of Gutman Library's Research and Instruction Staff (5-3421) for further information about this database.
