The ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education (ERIC/EECE)

The ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education (ERIC/EECE) has been located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 1967. The clearinghouse identifies, selects, and processes the report literature, books, and journal articles on topics related to the development, care, and education of children through early adolescence (except for specific subject areas covered by other ERIC clearinghouses) for the ERIC database.

The clearinghouse also provides other products and services, many of them at no cost. Free products include a biannual newsletter; ERIC Digests; resource lists on topics of high interest to parents, educators, policy makers, and the general public; brochures and publications lists; and ERIC system materials. Major publications and ReadySearches are available at low cost.

In response to queries from the general public, the clearinghouse provides free materials, short searches of the ERIC database, and referrals to other information sources when appropriate. Other clearinghouse services include conducting workshops and making presentations, providing camera-ready materials for conferences, and conducting extensive computer searches (for a fee) on topics related to the clearinghouse's scope of interest.

Please write or call the clearinghouse for additional information on any of these services or products, or to be placed on the clearinghouse mailing list.
