by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 21, 2003

From a posting on written by Nancy Macomber:

  • “The U.S. Department of Education has decided to shut down the 16 subject-specific ERIC Clearinghouses on December 31, 2003. The Department is running a competition to select a contractor to maintain the database portion of ERIC. This “new” ERIC is expected to begin operating in mid-October 2003. There will be a brief period of overlap as the Clearinghouses wind down operations and the centralized contractor gets up and running.”
  • From the ERIC Clearinghouses FAQ: The ERIC Clearinghouses collect, abstract, and index education materials for the ERIC database.
