One of our missions at FLITE is to offer all off-campus students access to the high-quality research materials available through the library. FLITE's subscription databases are available to all current Ferris students, faculty, and staff, including off-campus students. Our Distance Education web site should help you with any questions you may have about reaching FLITE from wherever you are. Be sure to study it carefully and return to it often. If you experience problems logging on, please call (231) 591-2669 or (800) 4-FERRIS (ext. 2669).

Papers/Articles with ERIC ED/EJ designations
All papers showing an ERIC Document number (EDxxxxxx) designation are freely available. An easy way to download is to use the Department of Education sponsored version of ERIC - http://www.eric.ed.gov/
A PDF icon will appear at the end of each record. This will be the case with a few journal articles as well, although most EJ articles show only an abstract and not the full-text. (ERIC journals use the EJxxxxxx designation.) If you use this method, no login or "Find It" button is necessary. The two EJ articles are freely available through ERIC.
