Latest Video Describes How to Use Improved ERIC Identifiers

ERIClogoDo you search ERIC for materials related to a particular law, policy, or education assessment? Are you looking for research that is specific to a city, state, or country? ERIC just made it easier to find these types of materials using our improved identifier filters. While identifiers have been part of ERIC since 1966, they are now easier to use. The identifiers have been streamlined, standardized, and included in ERIC’s search limiters to help users readily find research related to education laws, assessments, and specific locations.

Our latest video and infographic describe ERIC identifiers and walk through how to use them in a search. These resources help answer questions about how identifiers have changed and can best be used, such as:

• What are identifiers?
• How do they differ from the former identifiers?
• What categories of information do identifiers cover?
• How do identifiers aid in searching?
• How do I use identifiers in a search?

Learn more about the identifiers in our latest blog post.
