Rutgers University Libraries ERIC: Other Name Searches

ERIC does not include names, including case names, in its subject thesaurus. So if you type in a case name as your search term it will never be presented to you as a selection option.

However ERIC does assign case names to citations as an identifier, i.e., an additional, 'unofficial' subject heading. In order to find these identifiers, you need to search

  • the case name

  • Make sure you use "v" and not "vs"

    Select the case name from the bottom of the "Subject Heading" list, and search it as a keyword.

    Click on the "Display" button to view your citations.
