ED Accession Numbers

From November 1966 through July 2004, ERIC indexed more than 470,000 documents, reproducing most of them on microfiche with copyright-owner permission.

If you are looking for an article on ERIC and:

  1. The fulltext link is not working
  2. The article has an ED accession number, for example ED123456
  3. The date of the article is between 1966 - 2004

chances are that we can find it for you through inter-library loan or we can give you a METRO card which will allow you access to a library that has an ERIC microfiche.

What Do I Have to Do?

Copy and paste the article's:

  • title
  • author
  • date
  • ED accession number

into an email to librarian@bankstreet.edu. In the example below the important information needed was copied from the result list page.

EJ Accession Numbers

If you are looking for an article on ERIC and:

If you still can't find a suitable database or hard copy in the Library's print holdings, send an email to librarian@bankstreet.edu with a complete citation and most importantly the EJ accession number.
