*** NOTICE ***
The ERIC Clearinghouse on
Information & Technology
web site is no longer in operation.
The United States Department of Education continues to offer the
All ERIC Clearinghouses plus AskERIC will be closed permanently as of December 31, 2003.
In January 2004, the Department of Education will implement a reengineering plan for ERIC. The new ERIC mission continues the core function of providing a centralized bibliographic database of journal articles and other published and unpublished education materials. It enhances the database by adding free full text and electronic links to commercial sources and by making it easy to use and up to date.
From January 2004 until the new ERIC model for acquiring education literature is developed later in 2004, no new materials will be received and accepted for the database. However, the ERIC database will continue to grow, as thousands of documents selected by the ERIC clearinghouses throughout 2003 will be added. When the new model is ready later in 2004, the new ERIC contractor will communicate with publishers, education organizations, and other database contributors to add publications and materials released from January 2004 forward.

About ERIC Clearinghouse on Information & Technology
Welcome to the ERIC Clearinghouse on Information & Technology web site. We call ourselves "ERIC/IT". . . meet our staff.
ERIC/IT is hosted by the Information Institute of Syracuse at Syracuse University. We are affiliated with the School of Information Studies, and the School of Education (especially the Instructional Design, Development & Evaluation (IDD&E) program).
ERIC/IT is one of 16 clearinghouses in the ERIC system. We specialize in library and information science and educational technology. ERIC/IT acquires, selects, catalogs, indexes, and abstracts documents and journal articles in these subject areas for input into the ERIC Database. Each year, ERIC/IT publishes Books, Digests, and Minibibliographies in the fields of educational technology and library and information science. Our semi-annual newsletter, ERIC/IT UpDate, features original articles and announces new clearinghouse products and developments, and ERIC/IT Networkers provide helpful information for using ERIC-related resources on the Internet.
ERIC, the Educational Resources Information Center, is a national education information system sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education (ED). ERIC is part of the National Library of Education (NLE). A slide show is available from ACCESS ERIC describing the services and products of the nation-wide ERIC System.
