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the core function of providing a centralized bibliographic database of journal articles and other published and unpublished education materials.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.

ERIC Web Links 2002/2003
Internet Resources for Children and TeensBy Blythe Bennett
Here teachers, parents, and students in grades 3-12 will find some of the best educational Web sites for use during the 2002/2003 school year and beyond. Each annual ERIC Web Links, published every September, describes and links to over 50 additional sites, covering not only the core curriculum of math, science, language arts, and history/social studies, but also art, health, music, and more. Last school year the Scout Report recommended ERIC Web Links 2001/2002: Internet Resources for Children, hundreds of schools and public libraries linked to it from their own Web sites, and tens of thousands of teachers, parents, and students from across the country used it.
ERIC Web Links are available at ericit.org in both an html version, with links, and a pdf version for ease in printing and photocopying. All ERIC publications are in the public domain and may be freely reproduced and disseminated.
