Ongoing Access to ERIC services:
"On October 1, 2004, ERIC
will introduce, for the first time, free full-text non-journal ERIC resources.
These materials include more than 105,000 full-text documents authorized
for electronic ERIC distribution during 1993 - July 2004, previously sold
through E*Subscribe from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service (EDRS).
EDRS, which also sells the ERIC microfiche, is scheduled to close operations
on September 30, 2004.
In December, ERIC will add
new bibliographic records and full-text journal and non-journal resources
published in 2004. Newly indexed materials that are not available
free-of-charge will be made accessible through database links to commercial
sources. ERIC will continue to add features and enhancements to the
system in the coming months."
WoK access is to the "Ask
Eric" database ... not providing any access to the EDRS full text.
The "Ask Eric" database is hosted by the Educators Reference Desk http://www.eduref.org/
(16/2/04, Jeroen Prinsen, ISI)
Educator's Reference Desk.
The people who created AskERIC
announce a new service and name to access the resources you've come to
depend on for over a decade. While the U.S. Department of Education discontinued
the AskERIC service December 19th, you will still have access to the resources
you've come to depend upon. Through The Educator's Reference Desk (http://www.eduref.org)
you can access AskERIC's 2,000+ lesson plans, 3,000+ links to online education
information, and 200+ question archive responses. While the question answer
service will no longer be active, The Educator's Reference Desk provides
a search interface to the ERIC Database, providing access to over one million
bibliographic records on educational research, theory, and practice.
E*Subscribe - offers unlimited
access for a flat fee to about 80% of ERIC documents (1993 forward) electronically,
with the remainder restricted by contributors to microfiche release.
Expressions of interest (again,
but using this spreadsheet) to the CAUL
Office by 27 April, 2001.
