Looking for full-text education research? ERIC has more than 385,000 full-text journal articles, reports, conference papers and other materials available for download free of charge. Here is a video that describes the types of resources you can obtain in full text, and how to locate these materials in ERIC.

As of fall 2017, there were nearly 65,000 full-text journal articles in ERIC. More than 77 percent of grey literature providers permit display of their material, either immediately or following a period of embargo. ERIC is also the full-text repository for work developed and funded by IES, including final peer-reviewed manuscripts created by IES grantees and contractors. You can download final, peer-reviewed grantee manuscripts from ERIC one year after publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

ERIC works closely with publishers and other resource providers to encourage the release of full text in ERIC for the benefit of the broad education community.

Keep up-to-date with ERIC activities and releases by following ERIC on Facebook and Twitter. ERIC is an online library with more than 1.6 million records of journal articles, reports, and books in the field of education. ERIC is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education.
The Institute of Education Sciences, a part of the U.S. Department of Education, is the nation’s leading source for rigorous, independent education research, evaluation and statistics.

It has been a busy and exciting year for the library! I started my role as University Librarian in September, and have already had the pleasure of meeting many colleagues, library supporters, and library directors from across Canada. I hope to meet many more in the coming months.

The library has made improvements to student spaces, with renovations to two library branches over the year. We added to our electronic collections, and acquired several interesting collections, including the Kelmscott Chaucer and the Weynton journal. We have made significant advances to connecting research to community partners, and engaged with Indigenous partners as well. I encourage you to read more about our activities in our recently published 2016/17 annual report.
Thank you for your continued support of the Library, and best wishes to you throughout the holiday season. I hope to see you in 2018!
