Finding ERIC Documents

Finding ERIC Documents

ERIC is available to Fairfield University students using the ProQuest database and also publicly accessible at http://eric.ed.gov/. There are two types of materials in ERIC: journal articles and grey literature.  Grey literature may include research syntheses, conference papers, technical reports, policy papers, and other education-related materials. 

  • These materials are noted with an ERIC number beginning with ED, for ERIC Document, instead of EJ, for ERIC Journal.
  • If you see"Download Full Text" in the grey box to the right of an article, then ERIC has permission for you to download the article for free. To limit to these articles, select the "ERIC linked full text" box in ProQuest or the "Full text available on ERIC" box if searching directly in ERIC. ERIC has identified a small percentage of PDF documents (about 5.5%) as unreadable and designated these as "PDF Pending Restoration." A more readable copy will be rescanned in the future. If so designated, you can then see if the library can provide access via microfiche or through Interlibrary Loan.

  • To find free access to the full text of other articles, contact the library to see if you can get access through another databases, via microfiche or through Interlibrary Loan.

    • Search Note: For ED resources marked "Level 3," full text is not available online or in microfiche.  See a librarian to find these items.
