ERIC Clearinghouses on the Chopping Block

Various authors, Apr 22, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As this flyer indicates, "The U.S. Department of Education has issued a draft Scope of Work (SOW) for a NEW ERIC system. Unless the draft SOW is modified, all 16 Clearinghouses and their services (including AskERIC, publications, and Digests) will be eliminated. The public has an opportunity to comment on these proposed changes until May 9, 2003." The revised service would eliminate personalized services, reduce the scope of journal literature, and limit web access. From Education Librarian. MS Word document.
