In 2012, the ERIC management team and the U.S. Department of Education decided to temporarily block access to full-text documents in ERIC (Education Resources Information Center), in order to check each document to ensure that it does not contain personal information that risks the identification of an individual.
The PDF Restoration Project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2014. To date, nearly 190,000 PDFs have been restored, at a rate of approximately 9,500 per week. There are circa-95,000 documents remaining to be reviewed: these will have an accompanying “PDF Release Pending” message. If you urgently require a copy of the document, the Inter-Library Loans Service may be able to obtain it, from another library, on your behalf.
