ERIC/EECE Web Sites
Volume 2 number 2 of ECRP is a new addition to ERIC/EECE's Web sites. In this issue, see the article "Readiness for School: A Survey of State Policies and Definitions," by Saluja, Scott-Little, and Clifford, for a feature new to ECRP, a searchable database of information discussed in the article. The article and the database address five questions concerning school readiness of states in the United States.
The National Child Care Information Center (NCCIC) is ERIC/EECE's Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Child Care. A recent new development on the NCCIC Web site is the addition of a searchable database of information related to child care in the United States. This information can be searched by individual state (or states) or by one or more of the 10 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regions. The information may also be searched according to one or more of these general categories: (1) Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF), (2) Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), (3) State Demographics, (4) Child Care Licensing, (5) Program Enrollment and Participation, and (6) Professional Development.

The Web site of the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Early Childhood Institute, a Web partner of ERIC/EECE, was redesigned, to some extent graphically and to some extent organizationally. The feature for searching the collection of CLAS materials was improved to allow for additional functions. For example, there is now an indication as to which items returned from a search are available in full text or in excerpts.
