Title:The development and operation of an education resources information clearinghouse (ERIC)
Author(s):Carss, Brian W.
Subject(s):Education Resources Information Clearinghouse (ERIC)
Abstract:In 1959, the Office of Education became particularly interested in developing an information retrieval and dissemination system for research that was carried on under Federal sponsorship. A pilot study was authorized to demonstrate the feasibility of such a system within the field of education. It was not until the years 1965-66, however, that the first of the twelve Education Resources Information Clearinghouses (ERIC) was established, and not until later, in March 1967, was the ERIC Clearinghouse on Early Childhood Education established as a part of a new program to be sponsored, again by the Office of Education.
