ERIC Microfiche Collection
ERIC MICROFICHE COLLECTION
The ERIC database includes references to journal articles (EJ numbers) and other publications called documents (ED numbers). Documents added to ERIC today that are not copyrighted (ED numbered entries) are available in full text online. However, since not all of the earlier ones have been released in digital format, they are available in microfiche.
Purdue Libraries owns these 436,622 ERIC documents on microfiche. During the summer of 2010 this collection was shifted to storage in the Hicks Repository. If you need an ED number that is not available online, request that this document be retrieved:
HOW TO GET AN ERIC DOCUMENT NOW:
You can request that any ERIC document be returned to online status by sending them the ED number (ERICRequests@ed.gov).
Also, the Purdue Libraries has a full set of ERIC microfiche in the Hicks Repository in the basement of the Undergraduate Library. So if you do need one of these you can request it be pulled for you. The microfiche will be sent to faculty offices; students can pick them up at the Library noted in the email they send to you. Hicks Repository and the HSSE Library (on 2nd floor) have microfiche readers.
