Researching an Education Topic

Black and white picture of classroom with a teacher showing a film to his students.This guide will help you locate books, articles, and other sources that can help with your education research.

There are several types of sources you will want to look for in researching your education assignments:

  1. Print books: these resources live in the library (whether in the stacks, the reference area, or at the reserve desk) and some may be checked out for as long as 28 days.

  2. Ebooks: many reference books, nonfiction books, and fiction books can be found in electronic format.

  3. Articles: come from periodicals (newspapers, magazines and scholarly journals). The library owns some periodicals in print and gives you access to many more via our online databases.

  4. Recommended Websites: credible websites for education information.

  5. Films and Videos: links to films on education topics.
