The ERIC database is the major index to journal articles and documents relating to education. The document collection includes curriculum guides, lesson plans, research reports, conference papers, publications of educational associations, and other research and instructional materials. Documents added to the database after 1993 are available online; older documents are being digitized and may also be available online. An archive of ERIC documents from 1966-2004 is also available on microfiche and is located in retrievable storage during construction (call number LB 5 U5).
