This guide contains a variety of print and video tutorials designed to help students and faculty in the College of Education search our resources and/or utilize the library's services more efficiently and effectively.
The videos below will walk you through how to search ERIC using the EBSCOhostinterface. I recommend that you view them in the order they are presented. If you need to go back to a specific section you can use one of the links listed in the left column.
Although these tutorials provide the most detailed information about searching ERIC using the EBSCOhost interface there are a couple of things to keep in mind no matter which interface you use.
ERIC documents have an ED at the beginning of their accession number [Example: ED876543]
Education Journals have an EJ at the beginning of their accession number [Example: EJ987654]
USE THE THESAURUS if you are having trouble determining the correct terms to search.
USE THE PU PUBLICATION TYPE field to locate articles with research data.
DO NOT check the FULL TEXT box.
Carefully review any APA citations that you copy fromany database.
