ERIC documents

The Education Resources Information Center (ERIC), sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, produces the world’s premier database of journal and non-journal education literature. The ERIC online system provides the public with a centralized ERIC Web site for searching the ERIC bibliographic database of more than 1.2 million citations going back to 1966. More than 107,000 full-text non-journal documents issued 1993-present are freely available in the ERIC database.

In addition to locating them through the official ERIC database, you can link to them from any of the commercial versions of ERIC as well (EBSCOhost, FirstSearch, CSA).

The ERIC database includes documents identified by 6-digit ED numbers and EJ numbers. 

  • EJ documents are ERIC Journal articles
  • search for these documents by journal title on Addison or the Journal Title Database 
  • if searching one of the commercial versions of ERIC, click on the Get VText link. 
    • if there is no online availability, click on the Addison link to check print holdings and on ILLiad when there is no local availability in any format.

For questions about ERIC content or searching, please contact the education librarian, Heather Moorefield-Lang.
