ERIC began an effort to remove personally identifiable information from their full text documents in August of 2012.  The information had been publicly available through other means, but it was appearing more frequently in internet searches and becoming easier to access because of web advances.  Access to many full text documents on ERIC's database was temporarily disabled. Every document will be checked for personally identifiable information before being restored.
