ERIC Workaround During Sequester Outage
Due to the Federal Government sequester, my favorite publicly accessible interface to the ERIC aka "Education Research Information Clearinghouse" database is not working. In place of using the awesome http://eric.ed.gov website, I recommend the first of the following two vendor platform options. Especially notice how they each handle searches that utilize the ERIC Thesaurus (which I highly recommend you use for precise and powerful searching.)
Try them both and let me know which you prefer!
