ERIC adds 192,000 free fulltext from its microfiche collection

Kudos to ERIC, the Education Resources Information Centre, for digitizing and making freely available over 192,000 free full-text documents from its microfiche archive. This is over 55% of the archive. We can all help ERIC further this effort by helping to contact rightsholder to clear permission for the rest. This adds significant value to the free ERIC Index.
