ERIC Tutorial

5.1 Details (Full Record Example)

From this list, click on any title to see all the details, including the abstract which summarizes the resource. The best way to know if that item is relevant? Read the abstract!You can also preview the details by mousing over the magnifying glass icon after any title.

In addition to the abstract, the detailed record also includes descriptors. These are the controlled vocabulary terms you read about in section 3. They often include some good terms for your next search, and you can even use these links to access other articles about the same subject. One caution, though - any limits or other search terms you have entered are erased on a linking search.
