ERIC DOCUMENTS INACCESSIBLE DURING US GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Please be advised that the full text ERIC document collection normally accessed through the US government is currently unavailable during the shutdown. That means students cannot access the PDFs of the “ED” documents. If you have any links in Moodle or elsewhere, or assignments that point students to such documents, you may need to revisit your requirements during this time.

A portion of the documents from 1997 – 2004 may be available in microfiche, but nothing after 2004 was published in fiche format.

Please contact Melissa Belvadi, UPEI Collections Librarian,  if you have any questions or would like assistance relating to this or any other library-resources related matter.
