ERIC (eric.ed.gov) has a new look

The public access version of ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) has a new website and a new logo.

The website’s new interface is much more “google-like” where users can search for keywords, author, and title at the same time in the search box or they can use single terms.

The streamlined approach means the advanced search screen is no longer available, however, users will still be able to limit to peer reviewed or full-text available content at the start of their search.

In addition, the results page allows for further refinement by letting users narrow their search to publication date, descriptor, source, author, publication type, education level or audience.

Additional features and content will be added on an ongoing basis, hopefully based upon browser feedback.
