Where is the Full-Text in ERIC?

We get many calls and emails from frustrated users who do a search in ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) and don’t see the PDF Full Text link which indicates the article is available.

Find Full Text link example

ERIC is a little different than our other databases so the the “trick” is to remember when you are searching ERIC if you don’t see the PDF Full Text link click on the link Find Full Text. This link will search all of the other Library databases and bring up a link to the article or journal, if the text of the article is available in a database other than ERIC. If it is not available there is a link on this screen to the interlibrary loan form. So remember, if you don’t see a PDF full text link in ERIC, click Find Full Text and very often the article will be found in another Library database.
