ERIC Reauthorization News.  ERIC clearinghouse websites have now closed. [These pages are a project of the Education and Behavioral Science Section of ACRL/ALA.  Maintained by Kate Corby, Education and Psychology Bibliographer, Michigan State University Libraries] 19/1/04]

Ongoing Access to ERIC services: (updated 10/9/04) :

"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  (16/2/04, Jeroen Prinsen, ISI)

Announcing the 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 ( 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.
