Recently, ERIC released a widget that provides a quick path to ERIC resources for students, librarians, and researchers. The widget is intended to help users gain immediate access to ERIC search tools and products to help support their work and studies.

The widget provides links to some of ERIC’s most popular resources, including the ERIC home page to launch a quick search and the Thesaurus to find useful search terms. The widget also links to key videos created primarily for students and novice users. The videos provide information on how to effectively search ERICbasics about ERIC, and writing a research paper.

You can obtain the widget from the ERIC website and host it on your LibGuides, on library websites, and in other electronic resources such as course packs.
