Inaccessible ERIC documents

Due to the discovery of sensitive, personal information in various full-text documents available in the  Education Resource Information Center (ERIC) database, the ERIC team has taken the measure of disabling access to many full-text documents while sensitive information can be located and removed. 

Consequently, MHC Library patrons who use ERIC may encounter records for full-text articles that are not available.  Until complete full-text access is restored, ERIC has set up a form whereby users can request that specific articles be prioritized for review.  MHC Library Services also recommends users search alternative databases to find similar information.
