ERIC provides access to thousands of records which consist of scholarly journals, reports, conference proceedings, and reference works. Many of these records contain links to the ERIC full-text documents, but the user can also access full-text from the publisher when available or use the library's linked full-text resources when available. Additional full text from ProQuest for many of the journals indexed in ERIC is available through ProQuest Education Journals.
