The session will include time for questions and audience feedback following the presentation.

ERIC is a program of the U.S. Department of Education that provides an online digital library of nearly 1.4 million records of journal articles, grey literature, and books related to the practice and improvement of education. A distinguishing feature of ERIC is the grey literature collection, which includes reports, conference papers, and dissertations/theses on myriad topics including critical thinking, information literacy, and school libraries. ERIC's user community includes librarians, researchers, practitioners, and teacher educators worldwide who access the collection through the public site at www.eric.ed.gov, as well as through Internet search engines and commercial database vendors.
