ERIC

The "Educational Research Information Center" (ERIC) started out in 1957 as a project to disseminate education research to researchers, government officials, and the public. The collection, originally housed on computer tapes and microfilm, was one of the first to be migrated to the Internet. It now consists of a searchable database of over 2,800 papers and articles, as well as an education thesaurus. No matter what the topic, you can find scholarly articles on it here.
