I removed the logo because it hasn't been used by ERIC for over 5 years. A new logo should be posted. BC Martin (talk) 15:55, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

The graphic is out of date.(There is a new post 2004 logo in the site.) Some discussion should be added about changes to ERIC since 2004. May also want to note how the ERIC database as appearing on their site compares to ERIC as sold by database vendors to academic libraries. --BC Martin (talk) 21:26, 1 January 2009 (UTC)



I added the following public domain text from the Library of Congress at http://www.loc.gov/rr/main/alcove9/education/database.html.

"Prior to January 2004, the ERIC network was comprised of sixteen subject-specific clearinghouses, adjunct and affiliate clearinghouses, and a number of support components. Each of the sixteen clearinghouses recommended materials for inclusion in the ERIC database, but also maintained additional extensive resources available by contacting the clearinghouse. As of January 2004, the ERIC clearinghouses were closed as part of a reorganization by ERIC's parent agency, the U.S. Department of Education. Some clearinghouses have transferred their operations to other institutions; others have shut down entirely."

I noted the source in the edit summary. I hope this is adequate protection from a plaigarism charge. LarryQ 02:39, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
