Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) is an authoritative database of indexed and full-text education literature and resources.
It is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences of the U.S. Department of Education, and is an essential tool for education researchers of all kinds.
Use ERIC to:
- locate journal articles, books, conference papers, curriculum guides, dissertations and policy papers
- limit search results by education level (e.g. Early Childhood Education) and intended audience (Counsellors, Teachers)
At the University of Adelaide, ERIC is hosted on the ProQuest platform, so the search and display functions are consistent across both.
The interactive activity below provides an introduction to advanced searching in ERIC. Follow the prompts on the activity screen to proceed through.
