Someone recently sent me this information on ERIC. I found it so useful
that I thought others might be interested as well. I have used the
SUINFO system and have had moderate success with it. I have not tried
the ohter address for ERIC but have no reason to believe it would not
work. Hope some of you find this info as helpful as I have.
