The "Educational Resources Information Center" or "ERIC" is the world's largest database of education related information. It is the primary database used by educators, education students, and education administrators.
The database was created in 1966 and it currently contains over 1.5 million articles, theses, reports, conference proceedings, teaching guides, and books. It is supported by the United States Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement. It is administered by the U.S. National Library of Education (NLE).
Through the UW Libraries there are three portals to ERIC. All access the same information:
- ERIC (EBSCOhost) No full-text (citations only). Access to authorized UW, faculty and staff.
- ERIC (Institute of Education Sciences) Open Access to all patrons. Partial full-text
- ERIC (ProQuest) Partial full-text. Access to authorized UW students, faculty, and staff. UW alumni currently have access through the UW Alumni Association. Click this link for more information about alumni databases.
