The ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) database is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education to provide extensive access to educational-related literature. ERIC provides coverage of journal articles, conferences, meetings, government documents, theses, dissertations, reports, audiovisual media, bibliographies, directories, books and monographs. It also offers users access to many of the ERIC documents no longer available online in the UML ERIC microfiche from 1972 to 2003.

Education Research Complete provides indexing and abstracts for more than 2,150 journals, as well as full text for nearly 1,200 journals, and includes full text for more than 500 books and monographs, and for numerous education-related conference papers.
