Education Databases (ERIC and more)

If you use the education databases, you may already know the issues with ERIC:

Due to privacy concerns about the ERIC document collection sponsored by the US Department of Education, many PDFs of these documents are unavailable at this time
Read the entire alert provided by ERIC. They state that: "If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email with the record number (such as ED263102)." 

To help address some of this issue, we now have a trial to a new database from EBSCO called Education Complete. Try it out and let us know what you think.
