The Educational Resources Information Center

The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) was established by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare in 1966. ERIC provides access to an immense collection of education-related literature. ERIC consists of a database and an extensive network of subject experts. The ERIC database uses the ERIC thesaurus for controlled vocabulary, and includes more than one million abstracts and citations to reports, documents, and articles.
