Answer

We subscribe to many databases that include articles of use to you.  We list them all here, and have them arranged by subject here.

 

For example, Academic Search Premier is one of our most popular databases.  When you click the link, it will open the database (you’ll have to log in with you IU username and password if you’re off campus).  Then, type what you want to know more about in the search blank.  For example, you might be interested in:

 

Environmental activism

Religious persecution

Cloud computing

Euro zone

 

When you see the results, click a title that interests you to learn more about it, or the full text link to read the whole article (in the sample searches above, I have limited to full text articles only).  If you don’t see exactly what you want, you can modify the search words to get other articles.  For example:

 

Euro zone AND Greece

Environmental activism AND tree spiking

 

Academic Search Premier is a great general information database.  But we have many other specialized databases for finding articles.  Interested in a business topic?  Try these databases.  Medical information?  Try these ones.  The databases by subject link above can help you find the articles that are right for you.

 

Please let me know if I can be of any help in finding the articles you want.

 

Cordially,

 

Matt

    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database

     

    From their website:

     

    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email ERICRequests@ed.gov with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
