ERIC Reports Now Available in GPO Access

In October 2002, the U.S. Department of Education discontinued distribution of microfiche of government-funded reports from the ERIC program to the Federal Depository Library Program (item 0466-A-03, ED 1.310/2:), and began providing GPO with electronic versions of the reports. These reports are now available in GPO Access < http://www.gpoaccess.gov/eric/index.html > as searchable PDF files, beginning with ED 463411. They will continue to be cataloged for the Catalog of Government Publications as in the past.

The ERIC program makes available a wide variety of research on topics in education. Not all reports in the ERIC program are eligible for distribution in the FDLP because they are not produced solely at government expense.

The subset is approximately 10% of the total body of reports available from ERIC. The complete collection of ERIC reports is available from the ERIC program at < http://www.eric.ed.gov/ >, a fee-based service of the Department of Education.
