CSC wins recompete for Education's online library

Company will continue to operate the online library for the Education Resources Information Center

CSC will operate an online digital library for the Education Department under a new five-year contract worth up to $29 million, the company announced today.

CSC will support the department's Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) under the contract. The new agreement has one base year and four one-year options.

The Education Resources Information Center is designed to be a comprehensive, easy-to-use, searchable, Internet-based bibliographic and full-text database of education research and information for educators, researchers, post-secondary faculty and students, parents and the general public, according to CSC.

CSC and Education have worked together for 36 years, according to the company.

In April, the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association selected the ERIC Web site as one of the Best Free Reference Web Sites of 2008 for the Machine-Assisted Reference division. ERIC was one of 29 sites recognized by MARS as an outstanding site for reference information. MARS selection criteria included ease of use; currency of content; authority of producer; and quality, depth and usefulness of content, according to the association.

CSC, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 9 on Washington Technology’s2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
