ERIC is "an online digital library of education research and information" made available through the U.S. Department of Educatio.

ERIC provides access to curriculum development materials and other educational literature for teachers and others involved in education.

ERIC is said to contain well over one million bibliographic records of "journal articles and other education-related materials," a number that increases weekly as new records enter the database.

Tips & Special Features:

You can click the "Journal Index" to see which publications are included in the ERIC database.

You can switch from the default keyword search mode to search by Title, Author, Descriptors (using the built in subject term thesaurus), or ERIC document number.

Because ERIC search results can be numerous even when using specific and multiple keywords, you can improve your search results in several ways: If you need ideas or would like to explore ERIC's database using existing subject headings (ERIC descriptors), click the "Thesaurus" tab at the top of the ERIC database page and browse by topic and subtopic. For example, the topic "Arts contains several dozen subtopics from "Acting" to "Visual Arts."
