New Ways to Cite ERIC resources...

From Mesoj, Education Librarian blogger:
Just when you thought it was safe to cite ERIC the same old way...
Since the EDRS (ERIC Document Reproduction Service) is now extinct since ERIC's reorganization, Kate Corby (Education and Psychology Bibliographer of Michigan State University Libraries) has informed the EBSS-L discussion list members of the APA's new preferred citation format for sources retrieved in ERIC. (Thanks, Kate!)
Provided on consultation with the American Psychological Association, following are two examples which we expect will be added soon to the APA Style page:

For technical reports obtained through ERIC online:
Mead, J. V. (1992). Looking at old photographs: Investigating the
teacher tales that novice teachers bring with them (Report No.
NCRTL-RR-92-4). East Lansing, MI: National Center for Research on
Teacher Learning. Retrieved July 21, 2005, from the ERIC database. (ERIC
No. ED346082)

For journal article obtained through ERIC online:
Klassen, R. M. (2004). A cross-cultural investigation of the efficacy
beliefs of South Asian immigrant and Anglo Canadian nonimmigrant early
adolescents. Journal of Educational Psychology, 96, 731-742. Retrieved
July 21, 2005, from the ERIC database. (ERIC No. EJ685035)
