Summary

The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system's computerized data base was the focus of a three-hour tutorial session on search strategies. This document is the workshop manual used by the tutorial participants. The discussion of the input phase of a computer search covers identification of the user population, receiving the inquiry, and the types of services offered. The actual mechanics of searching includes general principles of good searching, search theory and general manipulative capabilities, and specific properties of the ERIC system that affect computer search capabilities. There is a practice session in which three searches are structured step-by-step. The output phase of a computer search includes a discussion of output formats, output evaluation, and statistical records-keeping. Eighteen technical notes discuss various aspects within each of these phases. Notes on the vocabulary improvement program for the "Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors" are appended. (SJ)
